Great news! The 2007-2008 pilot program to collect and recycle textiles in Union Square and Grand Army Plaza was such a great success that the program has expanded for 2009. Drop off your clean items, wearable and unwearable, at these locations:
  • Union Square Greenmarket, 16th St. and Union Square West, Saturdays and Mondays 8am-6pm
  • Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket, NW entrance to Prospect Park, Saturdays 8am-4pm
  • NEW! 97th St. Greenmarket, W. 97th and Columbus Ave., Fridays 8am-2pm
  • NEW! Tompkins Square Greenmarket, E. 7th St. and Ave. A, Sundays 8am-4pm
