CHANGE IN TEXTILE RECYCLING

Beginning Friday, November 19, on-call textile recycling will be provided by Green City Recycler.

Donate First, Recycle Second

This program will target the textiles going into landfills, not items being donated to charities, churches, non-profits and other organizations. The City encourages residents to donate items to a local charitable organization.

Ready to schedule a pickup?

Preparing for a pickup

  • Textiles must be placed in a customer-owned container (bag or box).
  • Set your textiles out on your front porch by 7 a.m. on your collection day, but no earlier than 6 p.m. the evening before.
  • Do not place textiles in your city issued recycle cart.

So, will the new textile recycling information stick like a bad infomercial? We sure hope so!
