Recycling Textiles

Textiles, paired shoes and socks, clothes and linens are easy to reuse. Residents can donate their clean, used textiles for reuse to the area charities below. In addition to these charities, many resale and consignment shops also accept used textiles.

Clothing and shoes are 100% recyclable, but 85% still ends up in landfills! On your regular weekly collection day simply place the orange bags by your recycling on city recycling day.
