Place a Recycle That Collection Box
at your Business Location
Why you should donate your worn, torn and well-adorned.
Imagine your favorite old flannel pajamas reappearing as a dust cloth for an artistic craftsman finishing fine custom furniture…
Even torn and damaged clothing, linens and bedding/bath have a second life beyond their original use. These items are cut down and re-purposed into industrial wiping cloths and used in industries like, construction, maintenance, custodial and repair.
In fact, approximately 30% of all textiles donated will find a new use as industrial wiping cloths. So, even if it’s worn or torn don’t hesitate, just donate.
Recycle That container is located at the ReStore Billerica
