Textile Recycling

San Francisco Environment wants to help you drop off unwanted clothes, shoes and linens at a location near you.

Why is this important?  San Franciscans send 4,500 pounds of textiles to landfill every hour.

Most of the 39 million pounds of textiles we send to the waste stream each year can be reused or recycled into insulation material, flooring, packaging, or cushioning in stuffed toys, insoles, and bags.

Visit San Francisco Environment to find out more about the textile recycling program.

Green Planet Stream
