[ARCHIVED] Collecting Used Clothing & Accessories

Used Clothing Drop off!

Township Open House

November 2

5-7 p.m.

Note: This is a one-time event. Please do not drop off your items at other times.

We are partnering with Retrievr for this event, and saving you the $10 doorstep pick-up fee. Peruse the Township's open house while you're here!

Information from Retrievr on how items are used:

We’ll take just about any clean and dry textile or fabric in your home.

Your clothing, shoes and accessories are sorted either by our staff or by our trusted partners, with an eye towards their highest best use. Historically, around 30% of what we collect is in a resellable condition. The rest is downcycled into cleaning rags and fiber for automotives and other uses. But, now, in partnership with brands, more and more of what we collect is starting to be funneled towards emerging fiber to fiber and recycling technologies, meaning that we are working with downstream partners who can create cotton thread out of >%90 cotton garments, wool yarn out of  >%90 wool garments, and extract down out of garments for reuse. We are extremely excited about these developments and are looking for more and more fashion partners to work with.

All we ask is that you clean your clothing items before sharing them with us; we’re here to help with your recycling, not your laundry 😄 .

Items accepted:

  • Bedding
  • Clothing (adult and kids)
  • Curtains
  • Gloves, belts and hats
  • Halloween costumes
  • Handbags
  • Napkins and table linens
  • Shoes (adult and kids)
