NOTE: The Blue recycle cart is collected curbside on a weekly basis. Items placed into the blue cart SHOULD NOT be bagged, but they should be relatively clean, dry and empty. Lids and labels DO NOT need to be removed. Carts should be placed at the curb by 6 a.m. on your designated collection day.
CLOTHING IS RECYCLABLE - BUT NOT ACCEPTED IN THE BLUE CART. The most popular route for disposing of old clothing is through donation to charities. It's the perfect deal; you get rid of your unwanted clothing while helping others in need. Please recycle your clothing with local charities, thrift stores, Goodwill or Salvation Army.
What happens to clothing once it's donated to a thrift store, etc.? When a piece of clothing is donated, the charity or thrift store that receives it will always seek out the maximum value for that item. That might mean it is put up for sale first, and if the item isn't sold within that store's preferred time-frame, it moves on to the next stage. This could be in the form of donation to a charity, wholesale to a clothing recycler to convert the item to scraps for another reuse, or sell overseas.
What does recycle clothing become? If clothing isn't still usable, it's typically sent to recyclers to be broken down and reused. Clothing can become anything from cleaning rags and carpet padding to rubberized playgrounds and insulation.
