In partnership with Baystate Textiles, CCQ collects most used textiles, recycling over 95% of the items collected, avoiding landfills! In 2018, we collected over 6,000 lbs. of textiles, more than double what was collected in 2017.
Eligible items include (clean and dry):
- belts, purses, luggage
- curtains, sheets, blankets
- stuffed animals
30% gets donated to thrift stores
30% is made into industrial rags
35% is made into stuffing for cushions
5% has been contaminated and must be discarded
Spring Cleaning time is right around the corner!!! And our clothing bin is conveniently located at the rear of our parking lot.
CCQ receives $0.05 for every pound of textiles in the bin, so remember us when it's time to refresh your wardrobe, spring cleaning time, moving time, change of season time or any time!
