Spring-cleaning time: A chance to recycle clothes you don’t want

April 19, 2013 at 11:30 am | In How to help, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

We’ve already featured upcoming opportunities for shredding and non-routine recycling – If you’re planning (or doing) spring cleaning, here’s a chance to recycle clothes! West Seattle Brownie Troop 43779 invites you to drop off donations for its clothing drive; they’re getting the word out now so you can save up items you might otherwise dispose of:

Clothing Drive – Week of April 29th through May 4th

Please bring your gently used clothes to the collection box out in front of the Gatewood Elementary office.

Spring cleaning? Brownie Troop #43779 community service project is collecting used clothes for the Northwest Center!

Saturday, May 4th: General public clothing drop off in Gatewood’s back parking lot (California Ave SW and SW Frontenac) from 11 am – 1 pm

  1. Excellent cause, and wishing great success to all involved, but if the goal is to “recycle”, anyone have info on where to recycle clothing worn beyond use?
    I have tons of jeans/t-shirts/etc. that are too worn-out for wearing, but hate to throw these items in a landfill…is there an agency out there that takes used-but-unwearable clothing?
