Bay State Textiles has teamed with Masconomet Recycling and DECA clubs to add four textile recycling boxes to the campuses of some of the schools in the Masconomet, Mass., Regional School District. The boxes, which are accessible 24 hours a day, accept items like clothing, shoes, pocketbooks, stuffed animals, drapes, rugs and socks.
The new textile program, which is overseen by the Recycling Club, supports the public schools by providing monthly rebate checks based on $100 per ton of donations.
Wicked Local Middleton has more information:
Recycling is more than just a club at Masconomet; it’s a community.
With the collaboration of Bay State Textiles and the Masconomet Recycling and DECA clubs, four textile recycling boxes have been placed indefinitely on the school’s campus. These bins are accessible 24 hours a day for community members who want to donate unwanted textiles, everything from clothing and accessories to linens and rugs and stuffed animals.
And, donated items can be in any condition, as long as they’re clean and dry.
