Clean Out your Closets and Donate for Good: Drop off Locations

Blue clothing donation bin

I know Spring Cleaning is a thing, however, have you been finding yourself Covid Cleaning? Everyone being stuck inside for so long looking for things to do has led to cleaning out closets.

There are many places to recycling your gently used clothing and shoes. Depending on the drop off location, they may want other household items like sheets and blankets too.

These drop off bins work as a fundraiser for community organization to earn money to support their programs. The clothing and other items are dropped in the bin, then the company picks it up. It is sorted and sold to thrift stores, textile recyclers, and overseas for use in other countries.
