How to dispose of your duvets and pillows

If these are clean and in a near new condition, some charity shops will accept the Alternatively, take them to one of our textile banks. In order to maintain hygiene, the re-use acceptance conditions for bedding and duvet are very strict. Unusable duvets and pillows must be disposed of as general waste via the red bags/ general waste containers.

Large volumes of duvets and pillows can be collected via a bulky collection by contacting 020 7641 6180. 

In order to prevent the spread of bed bugs please:

  • seal any duvets and pillows set out for the regular general waste collection in a closed red general waste bag or
  • contained in a closed plastic bag inside your general waste container
  • Never dispose of bedding in your recycling bin.
