November 21, Textile Drive @ Riley Plaza

Start saving now! Our annual Clothing & Household Textiles Recycling Drive is Saturday, Nov. 21 from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Look for the Helpsy truck in Riley Plaza.

WHY? — Because textiles aren’t trash, nor can they be placed in curbside recycling bins where they act as “tanglers.” Discarded textiles can be reused, cut up into rags, or ground up into new products.

DROP OFF — clean & dry clothing, sneakers, shoes, boots, slippers, belts, ties, purses, stuffed animals, comforters, sheets, blankets, table linens, and curtains.

ANY CONDITION — as long as clean and dry. Can be new and reusable, old and moth-eaten, torn, stained or damaged, broken belt, single sock or shoe. Damaged textiles are made into rags or recycled into new products!

PLEASE, NO — carpets, rugs, bric-a-brac, oil rags, wet or mildewed items, pillows.
