Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling says its collaboration with local thrift stores to recycle excess textiles has been a resounding success.  Solid Waste and Recycling is now expanding the service, and invites residents and businesses to deliver any textiles not fit for resale or reuse to the recycling center to be redistributed, reused and recycled. Textiles should be delivered in clear or white plastic bags rather than black bags.  Donations may include torn clothing, linens, towels, bedding, and curtains but not pillows, shoes, belts, or jewelry and should not be damp, wet, or soiled. Items that are still wearable should continue to be donated to thrift stores to be reused locally.  Mac Dukart of ISWR says these textiles are transported to Salt Lake City where Big Brothers, Big Sisters recycles materials not fit for resale.
