SalemRecycles Annual Clothing and Textile Recycling Drive
Saturday November 19, 2016!
Get ready for the holidays by cleaning out your closets the green way-via the SalemRecycles annual clothing and textiles event,
Saturday, November 19th, at the Riley Plaza parking lot from 8 am - 3 pm.
(Across from the Sa
lem Post Office at
2 Margin Street--look for a big Goodwill truck.)
It's easy. Just drive in and drop off your textiles. Enthusiastic volunteers will be available to help, and you can get a tax receipt receipt from Goodwill.
What is accepted? More than you would think! Hate those old curtains? Throw them in along with c
lothing, sneakers, shoes, boots, slippers, belts, ties, purses, pillows, bedding (comforters, sheets, blankets), table linens, draperies, towels and stuffed animals.
Items can be in almost any condition--beat up, moth-eaten, torn, and stained. But, they must be clean, dry and odor free!
Only have one sock or one shoe? No problem! Holes in your sweaters? Again, no problem.
What is not accepted? NO carpets, NO rugs, NO bric-a-brac, NO oil rags, and absolutely NO damp, wet or mildewed items.
What happens to all this stuff? It will all be reused--either sold in Goodwill stores or shredded and recycled into other items.
