Peterborough, ON - Textiles drop-off collection has resumed at the City of Peterborough recycling facility at 400 Pido Rd. and at the landfill at 1260 Bensfort Rd.

Textiles bins are in place at both locations through a partnership with Diabetes Canada, which regularly collects items, such as used clothing, from the bins for reuse opportunities.

The diversion of clothing and other textiles from landfill greatly assists the City with the community effort to reduce waste. Studies have shown that textiles represent up to 5% of residential waste generated by the residential sector across North America.
