Textile Recycling

Did you know that the average New Yorker tosses 46 pounds of clothing and textiles in the trash each year?

Much of this is recyclable at your local greenmarket. Bring your old clothing, shoes, towels, sheets, scarves, hats, bags and belts to the Grand Army Plaza greenmarket on Saturdays from 8am to 4pm. For other locations as well as a printable textile recycling poster to post in your building or workplace click here.

Clothing that is in good condition can be donated to other places for reuse. But ripped or stained clothes or sheets, not suitable for reuse, can be brought to the greenmarket for recycling.
