FALSE. If your town doesn’t accept textiles with other recyclables, find a collection bin. Often located in parking lots of shopping centers and groceries stories, these collection companies, like Charter Recycling, recycle and reuse nearly 100% of items collected. We determine which items are usable as clothing and can be exported, which can be sold and turned into rags, and which are candidates to be sold and processed back into fibers to make new products. Textiles get a second, third and even a fourth life this way. So find a bin and pay it forward.
