– “Thurston County Solid Waste launches Threadcycle campaign”
“Did you know that you can donate all clothing, regardless of condition? Your worn, torn, damaged and stained clothing doesn’t need to go into the garbage. Instead it can be donated for reuse and recycling at a number of locations throughout Thurston County.
What can I donate?
Now you can donate all of your clothes, shoes and linens. Theadcycle partners accept these items in any condition, so long as they are not wet, mildewed or contaminated with hazardous materials. Items that are torn, ripped, holey, stained, broken, worn-out, or that used to be part of a pair such as single socks, shoes, and gloves, are all accepted. To learn more about the campaign you can donate visit our Threadcycle website,” from Thurston County Solid Waste.
Clothing and textiles are the seventh largest category of waste, by weight, in Thurston County, which is about 6,000 tons sent to the landfill annually, so this program makes sense.
