Is your city considering a textile recycling program?

In September, USAgain CEO Mattias Wallander wrote an informative and unambiguous piece on the do’s, dont’s and goals of municipal textile recycling programs in the United States.  Check it out on Huffington Post.

His suggested tips include a comprehensive communications program to inform the public:
– Why it’s important to recycle used clothing
– What is appropriate to recycle
– How to prepare the recyclables
– Where to drop them off
– What happens to the collected materials once they’ve been dropped off

Is your city considering a similar program?  Has your city already implemented one?  Tell us your thoughts.

Stay tuned for more from USAgain!
