21 Ohio Communities have implemented this program, including Cincinnati, Ohio

The average person throws away 68 lbs. of clothing per year

85% of discarded textile materials end up in landfills:

What happens to the recycled used clothing:

45% is re-purposed and exported as secondhand clothing

30% is converted to wiping rags used as industrial and residential absorbents

20% is converted into home insulation, carpet padding and raw material for the automotive industry

Informational Post Cards and 2 recycling bags will be mailed to every home currently recycling in Sharonville

Once you receive the cards and bags, you can start recycling your unwanted clothing, shoes, handbags, and household textiles
