REMEMBER: IN ANY CONDITION, 95% OF ALL TEXTILES CAN BE RECYCLED OR REUSED.
Damaged Items Accepted
If they cannot be re-used for their original use, they will be used to become raw materials
for other products; ie: sneakers become asphalt, jeans become insulation, etc.
EVEN Single Shoes, Single Socks, Ripped/Torn Items
Why recycle textiles?
Each year tons of textiles are dumped in the trash, and costs our town money. Recycling saves on trash disposal costs and earns recycling revenue for our schools.
How & Where?
Bring your donations to the school of your choice in a plastic bag and simply place them in the open chute of the special textile recycling container.
All types of clothing, footwear and household textiles plus handbags, belts, and stuffed animals.
What happens to my donations?
Items are sorted into different grades, including usable / non-usable items and cotton and synthetics. Usable items are then redistributed to markets in economically challenged areas, where there is a demand for wearable clothing or other materials. Non usable items are shredded and used for fillers in many new products.
Non-acceptable Items: Carpets, mattresses, rags used with oil, gasoline, etc.
