Textiles such as clothing and linens comprise nearly 6% of residential waste in the city, adding to landfills and disposal costs.
Every Saturday the Greenmarkets at Grand Army Plaza and Union Square accept clothing and other textiles for reuse or recycling, even if they are ripped or worn--the fabric can still be recycled. You drop off clean clothing, shoes, bedding, linens, hats, handbags, belts and other textiles in usable or non-usable condition.
In addition, CENYC is expanding their textiles recycling program to include Fort Greene Park Greenmarket, McCarren Park Greenmarket, and others. For more information visit us online at CENYC or call 212-788-7989.
