Textile Diversion Program

The City of Timmins has partnered with Recycling Rewards to increase diversion of textiles from our landfill. The pilot program includes a curbside collection service for items such as used clothing, fabric, footwear and linens, as well as damaged or ripped textiles.

The Curbside Textile Collection Event will take place from Monday, July 27, 2020 to Friday, July 31, 2020. Due to the timing of the event and in an effort to reduce waste, pamphlets and bags will not be sent out to individual homes.

If you wish to participate in the curbside textile collection program, place your items in a large clear bag and place the bag(s) at the curb no later than 7:00am on your textile collection day. For more information regarding the collection days, routes, eligibility, and program details, we encourage residents to contact Recycling Rewards at 1-866-927-3873 or visit their website

The City of Timmins continues to encourage the use of the Timmins Recyclepedia app which allows residents to sign up for pick up reminders. The app also notifies residents when there is a delay or change in the curbside collection schedule and offers helpful tips on how to responsibly dispose of waste. Textile program notifications are also integrated into the app, as the textile collection dates differ from regular curbside collection.
