Clothing & Textiles

Disposal Options

Textiles are accepted at the District Transfer Station in our Textile Recycling program. This includes clothing, shoes, belts, bed sheets, pillow cases, curtains etc. Textiles that are recycled in this program do not need to be in perfect condition and can have rips and tears, as long as they have been washed and are in a plastic bag.

Although clothing is not accepted for reuse in the District’s Reuse It or Lose It! program, there are several local places listed below where you can bring clothing and other items for reuse. Also, by shopping at these reuse stores, you close the recycling loop and help the local economy!
