A total of 556 households in 23 streets of North Bellingen will be invited to participate over two consecutive collection days in November 2013.
Information packs will be sent out within the trial area containing three special sealable bags that can be filled with unwanted items of clothing and textiles. The bags will then be placed into the yellow recycling bin for collection during the regular roadside bin service on 7 and 21 November.
All resalable items of clothing will be donated to charity for resale in the local Bellingen and broader area and information gathered from this trial will be used to assess the feasibility of developing similar larger scale collection projects.
