Clothing & Textile

Clothing & Textile Brochure

You cannot put clothing & textiles in your Braintree Recycle cart as these items are not recycled curbside.
There is a Textile Collection Box at the Residential Drop-Off Center at 257 Ivory Street. Textile recycling generates money for Braintree, saves money on disposal fees, helps the environment and also saves room in your cart! 95% of all textiles can be recycled or reused. Donate or recycle, don’t throw it in the trash.

See below for other ways to donate/recycle your clothing & textiles......
