WELCOME TO BETTER WORLD RECYCLING
HELPING LESS FORTUNATE • CREATING JOBS • SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT
According to the U.S. EPA, a whopping 85% of all discarded textiles – 11 million tons – are sent to U.S. landfills every year. Better World Recycling, a green organization, works to reduce this textile waste by providing convenient locations where you can drop off your unwanted clothes, shoes, toys and books any time of the day, any day of the year.
By putting them back in the use cycle we conserve precious natural resources, prevent greenhouse gas emissions and save landfill space. What's more, these unwanted items are put towards social good once they are redistributed to people in our area as well as people around the globe who are less fortunate.
Our programs provide a growing number of green jobs in our local community and support a vast array of local small businesses, as well as other organizations that are having a positive impact on people and the planet.
