Curbside Collections of Clothing Continues in Pawtucket

PAWTUCKET- The City of Pawtucket is continuing its collaboration with Curbside Textile Recycling to collect residents’ unwanted clothing and shoes on their recycling days.

This program serves as part of the city’s expanded recycling options along with new clothing donation opportunities with Big Brothers Big Sisters and book donations through Discover Books.

Curbside Textile Recycling disposes of gently used clothing, and 2 cents for every pound of recycled clothing sold by the company goes to support local non-profits. The company has supported the Pawtucket Soup Kitchen, Books are Wings, and the Blackstone Valley Community Action Program to date.

“We are trying to ensure that residents have the opportunity to recycle their gently used items and reduce what goes into landfills,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “This opportunity allows for residents to recycle clothing without ever leaving home.”

Curbside Textile Recycling takes reusable clothing, belts, purses and shoes. Residents can use any bag for the first pickup and place it outside by 7:00AM on their recycling day somewhere where the pickup team can see it from the street. Pickup will be between 7:00AM and 5:00PM on the recycling day.

When a bag is collected, the company will leave one of their own bags for the next pickup.  If residents have more than one bag of items, they can use any type of bag and put it out with the provided bag to be collected. Bags are also available at the Pawtucket Public Works Department at 250 Armistice Blvd. Please contact dpw@pawtucketri.com or call 401-728-0500 ext. 260 for more information.
