A clothes recycling container is now available at the Laconia Transfer Station in the area with the single stream recycling containers!
The organization accepting the material, Apparel Impact, works with clothing graders, and 85% of what they collect is reused. The other 15% of what they collect is in bad enough condition that it needs to be recycled for other purposes. Apparel Impact also provides over 3,000 people in New Hampshire with free clothing through their community outreaches and partnerships with school districts and Easter Seals. All items do not need to be clean, but they do need to be dry and free from mold.
Items that can be recycled include: Purses and bags, ties, scarfs and hats, sneakers, any type of dress shoes, sandals, flip flops, clothing, coats and jackets and sheets and towels.
Please help the City reduce its solid waste disposal costs and make a difference in people's lives by recycling your clothing, not throwing it in the trash!
