Start saving now!

Our annual Clothing & Household Textiles Recycling Drive is Saturday, Nov. 21 from 8:00am – 1:00pm. Look for the HELPSY truck in Riley Plaza.

* NEW THIS YEAR * — We’ve partnered with TerraCycle to have special collections for shaving razors and Swiffers. TerraCycle offers recycling solutions for otherwise hard-to-recycle items.

~ Swiffers: save all used, dry Swiffer pads.
~ Razors: save all brands of reusable and disposable razor units, blades, & cartridges, as well as any flexible or rigid plastic packaging they come in.
~ Separate: please keep textiles & swiffers & razors separated in your vehicle.

WHY TEXTILES? — Textiles are valuable resources that can be reused, cut into rags, or ground up into new products! They can’t be placed in curbside recycle bins where they become “tanglers,” and they needn’t go in the trash.

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 can be recycled!

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

* * * SOCIAL DISTANCING * * * Please stay in your vehicle the whole time and have your items ready to unload in your trunk, truck bed or hatchback — items will not be unloaded from car seats. Please wear a face covering the whole time.
