The Council on the Environment of New York City [CENYC] is expanding their textile recycling program.

Beginning August 1st, the Fort Greene park Greenmarket will accept clothing and other textiles for reuse or recycling on--

Fort Greene Park Greenmarket
Washington Park at DeKalb Avenue

How does textile recycling work? You drop off clean clothing, shoes, bedding, linens, hats, handbags, belts and other textiles in usable or non-usable condition. Donations are sorted into different grades such as cotton blend and synthetic scrap, and then redistributed to markets where there is a demand for these materials, such as wearable clothing or stuffing for mattresses. For more information visit or call 212-788-7989.
