SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Did you know that the average U.S. citizen discards 70 pounds of textiles per year?
In effort to reduce textiles in our waste stream, the Village of Scarsdale has established a textile recycling program at the Village Recycling Center,110 Secor Road.
Residents are able to deposit their textiles Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 3p.m., in a bin provided. Acceptable textiles include all clothing, shoes, blankets, towels, bed sheets, hats, gloves, scarves etc.
Please place all acceptable items in tied bags before placing them in the bin. This will help ensure the clothing stays clean and can be properly recycled and reused. Unacceptable items include non-textiles, wet/oil soaked textiles, rugs and carpeting, pillows, mattresses and furniture.
For a list of where to donate such items, please visit: www.scarsdale.com/Home/Departments/Sanitation.aspx and click on “Donate Reusable Items to Local Charities."
Further questions regarding the textile recycling bin should be directed to Scarsdale Village Hall at (914)-722-1110.
