According to Simple Recycling: 85% of clothing ends up in a landfill - only 15% is recycled.
This free program is not a charity but an optional way for residents to discard unwanted items.

All of the materials are graded and sorted locally and/or regionally based on quality and condition. The top quality materials will be resold to local thrift outlets, mid-grade is exported to international markets and "unusable" items are processed for raw materials.
