Green Corner: Recycling Textiles in Belmont
Did your family receive new clothes or stuffed animals for the holidays and now you want to get rid of your old ones? Please don’t throw them in the trash! As long as textiles are clean and dry they can be donated and/or recycled. For recycling purposes don’t worry if they are worn, torn, permanently stained or missing a button or zipper. Some examples of textiles are: clothing, shoes, handbags, sheets, towels and draperies. A list of textiles that can be recycled is available here.
Below are some ways to recycle textiles:
- Drop off at DPW Recycle Days, held in May and October
- Call for a pick-up at your home from your favorite local charity
- Use textiles boxes located around town:
-- St. Vincent de Paul boxes behind St. Joseph’s Church via Orchard St.
-- Planet Aid boxes located on Lexington St, at Thayer Rd, or on Mill St. at Concord Ave
Any questions or suggestions, please contact Mary Beth Calnan, Belmont Recycling Coordinator at email@example.com or 617-993-2689.
