Textile Recycling


ZWAT members researched extensively to identify the most environmentally responsible textile recycler in the area, and worked with the Village to get this bin installed. Not all drop-off bins are the same! 

Commercial companies generally simply repackage donations and sell in bulk to poorer countries, where unusable fabrics become their waste problem. Green Tree Textiles sends scrap fabric to rag and fiber manufacturers and donates usable items to charity. You can be confident that your items will be responsibly recycled in this green bin.

The Green Tree bin is in the back of the Zinsser Commuter (aka train station) parking lot, near the bridge. Please use it! 

The Green Tree Textile bin is in the southeast corner of the Zinsser Commuter lot, aka train station parking lot, at Southside Avenue in Hastings. Map link.
