Clothing and Shoes



You can donate old clothes and shoes to your local thrift store. Some church groups and school organizations may also accept these items for donations to families in need and mission trips.


Look up organizations who will take your old textiles and shoes to recycle. Some retail stores have clothing recycle programs. 


If there are no options for your old clothing and shoes, they can go into your curbside trash bin. Clothing and shoes cannot go into the recycling bin.
