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.

    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]

    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
