Recycling Just Got Easier with Textile Curbside Pickup
- Published: 26 May 2017 26 May 2017
Did you know, without a curbside program, 85% of clothing, shoes, and reusable housewares get thrown into a landfill? On average, that results in 21 billion pounds of textile waste in the United States annually! The EPA reported nearly 68 pounds of textiles per household end up in the residential waste stream every year. The City of Lancaster and Simple Recycling have partnered in order to help change these shocking numbers and reduce the amount of reusable waste (which makes up to 15% of the residential waste stream) that ends up in our landfills.
