 Scrap fabric, yarn and thread


Put small pieces of fabric, yarn and thread in your black cart as garbage.

Take scrap fabric, yarn and thread (no spools) to a City of Calgary landfill Throw 'n' Go for textiles recycling. This can include used, damaged and scrap pieces.

Special instructions

Place items inside a bag before dropping off at the City landfill Throw 'n' Go. This helps keeps the textiles dry and makes it easier to collect.

Learn more about The City of Calgary's textile recycling program.

Why can’t yarn and thread be composted?

Many textiles are a mix of organic and synthetic fibres or manufactured products that will not break down during the composting process. To ensure we're creating the highest quality compost possible, please leave these items out of your green cart.
