Clothing Recycling Program

It's an honor and privilege for me to work with so many amazing organizations, communities, and municipalities across the country to offer a sustainable alternative for disposing of unwanted clothing and textiles. In 2012, I spearheaded the first of it's kind- a mail in textile recycling program which I called TrashN2Cash. The first year we diverted more than 20 tons of clothing from our waste streams. Since then TrashN2Tees clothing recycling programs and drop boxes are available nationwide- together we've saved  4,012,363,711 cubic yards of landfills space. For more information and to locate a box near you or to host a creative reuse workshop please contact me at Jenelle
What items are accepted?
We collect discarded clothing (stained and torn okay), paired shoes, bedding, linens, hats, handbags, belts, fabric scraps and other textiles.  We do not accept area rugs or carpeting. Items must be clean and dry.

What happens to materials donated?  
The clothing will be transported to a facility where it is sorted into different grades: including usable/non-usable, cotton scrap, cotton blend scrap and synthetics. The materials are later sold for reuse as clothing, linens, etc or to recycling markets that turn materials into wiping rags, fiber for car seats and insulation. Items collected may also be repurposed and used in TrashN2Tees designs.  
Is my donation tax deductible? 
No, sorry. TrashN2Tees is a local business that strives to encourage & inspire you to consume less and recycle more by making a positive impact right here in our own community. Through your support of TrashN2Tees you help to reduce the devastating toll on the environment!
