Recycle your old towels, sheets at Sheridan stores

Recycle your old towels, sheets at Sheridan stores

Do you have piles of old towels and bedsheets that you just haven't gotten around to removing yet

Now's the time to offload them - and take them to your local Sheridan store.

Every Sheridan store - including Narellan Town Centre and Fashion Spree Liverpool - is equipped with a linen recycling bin.

Shoppers are encouraged to drop off their old goods so they can be broken down and recycled into other materials.

The recycling initiative has been around since 2019, but was put on hold in 2020 due to Covid concerns.

However, this month the bins came back out.

"The Sheridan recycling program makes it easy for our customers to recycle their pre-loved bed linen and towels," Sheridan Australia group general manager Paul Gould said.

"Prior to pausing the program in stores, we had diverted more than 25,000 kilograms of textile waste from landfill. It just shows that if we play a small part, we can make a big difference."

The homewares industry experienced a spike in sales during isolation periods last year.

Sheridan noted that while the trend was favourable for business, it could be detrimental to the environment if customers were not educated and encouraged to reduce, reuse and recycle in the process.

That's why they can donate their goods - of any brand - to any Sheridan store.

Donated bed linen and towels are collected by a third party and sent to one of Sheridan's partner factories to be broken down into recycled materials.

Sheridan is currently the only retailer in the homewares industry to offer a recycling program.
