Recycling Center To Recycle Clothing

Clothing-Recycling

Teton County has expanded its recycling efforts to include used clothing and textiles as it increases efforts to reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill.  Those collected items that are still usable will be redistributed through the local thrift stores.  Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling has partnered with St. John’s Browse N’ Buy and Forget Me Not thrift stores to collect clothing from them that would otherwise be sent to the landfill.  County officials point out that these thrift stores receive an overwhelming amount of donations from the community, and unfortunately cannot process all of it for sale. Solid Waste and Recycling staff identified an organization in Salt Lake City that will redistribute the excess materials to other thrift stores around the region to serve others in need. Residents should still take their used clothing and textiles to the local thrift stores rather than to the recycling center. The thrift stores will sort the materials and send excess clothing to the Community Recycling Center which will then send it to Salt Lake City.  The local thrift stores request that only clothing and textiles that are clean and in good shape be donated at this point.

    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]
