Clothing Donation and Recycling

The Town of Hampstead does not collect clothes, but provides the possibility to an organization to collect the clothing on its territory from citizens wishing to contribute to worthy cause. While clothing collection bins are no longer available in Hampstead, should you wish to donate gently-used clothing to those who are less fortunate, please use the bins located at the corner of Queen Mary Road and Coolbrook Avenue in the Snowdon area, or at the Côte Saint-Luc Shopping Centre.
