Danvers residents with curbside trash and recycling pickup can recycle unwanted textiles simply by bagging them and leaving them at the curb on their regular scheduled recycling collection day. The Danvers Department of Public Works (DPW) is providing this service, free to the residents of Danvers, in partnership with Simple Recycling. Please see the below link for details.
Danvers offers two zero waste weekend recycling events annually in the spring and fall. One of the services offered is textile recycling. We accept clothing, shoes, purses, linens, stuffed animals, etc. Please see our Events for details.
Many charities will also recycle textiles – you can contact them directly for pickup or you can drop your textiles in any labeled bin.
Residents can purchase 22 gallon recycling bins ($5) and 32 gallon wheeled recycling carts with covers ($40) at the DPW Garage at 95 Hobart Street from 7:00 am – 2:45 pm (pay by Check Only made out to the Town of Danvers). Please call 978-762-0231 with any questions and to check availability.
Any durable, reusable container can act as your recycling bin, as long as it is properly marked for recycling, is no bigger than 45 gallons, and does not weigh more than 50 pounds. Free “Recycle” stickers are available to Danvers’ residents at the following Town offices:
Town Hall – 1 Sylvan Street – Front Desk and Public Works
