Curbside Textile Recycling

Danvers residents with curbside trash and recycling pickup can recycle unwanted textiles simply by bagging/boxing them and leaving them at the curb or at the front door.

  1. Why recycle textiles 
  2. How to recycle textiles

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), about 84% of old clothes, shoes, belts, handbags and textile items end up in a landfill or an incinerator. On average, that results in approximately 68 pounds of textile items per household each year. As a result, textiles comprise more than 6% of all the residential and municipal trash in the United States, and more than 8% in Massachusetts. Simple Recycling aims to change that.
