Hunters Hill locals showed their support today (Saturday 27 May, 2023) for Council’s initiative to divert textiles from landfill at a free community drop-off event at Clarkes Point.

Council partnered with textile recovery business BlockTexx and charity organisation Vinnies.

Clothing, bags and shoes donated by community members were collected by Vinnies for sale in the charity’s op shops.

Household linens, totaling to 1100 kilograms, were collected by BlockTexx as part of its ‘Give a Sheet for the Planet’ program. This is the equivalence of approximately 5,500 pillowcases or 1,700 double bed sheets.

These items will be converted into high-grade recycled materials to be used in the manufacture of new products.

The project was a NSW Environment Protection Authority initiative funded from the waste levy.
