Every resident and business in Middlesex County is required to recycle their textiles.  We define textiles as clean, dry clothing or other fabric measuring at least one foot by one foot in size.

Where can I recycle my textiles?

Textiles should not be placed in your curbside recycling bin. Rather, you can use any of the donation boxes or pickup services located in and around Middlesex County.

A few tips:

  1. Make sure you’re only donating items that the organization accepts.  Read the list of acceptable items on the box and do not drop off items that they do not want
  2. Clothing does not always need to be in perfect condition to be recycled.  Textiles that cannot be reused in the same form can be sold to make other materials such as rags and carpet padding.

How do I find a drop-off location?

Try any of the following companies:
