Latest Agenda:    Egremont Green Committee March 7

Egremont Textile Recycling:

        We in Egremont take our trash and recycling very, very seriously. Over the past three years, our attention to recycling and waste diversion has lowered the town's annual trash hauling tonnage from 480 tons a year to 403 tons. This has meant considerable savings to the town as well as the environmental benefits of less material going to landfill or incineration.
        Another thing we can do is to remove textiles from what we throw away. "Textiles" include clothing, shoes, belts, handbags, stuffed animals, rugs, towels, sheets and linens. They represent as much as 6% of our annual trash, so it makes sense to look for ways to reuse, repurpose, or recycle them.
        Clothing in good condition can be given away, sold to consignment stores, and donated to charitable organizations or thrift stores. The Town of Egremont has arranged with Goodwill Industries to have a truck available once a month (usually the third Saturday of the month from 10 am to 2 pm) in front of Town Hall. Clothing and other textiles that are still in good condition are sold to fund their community work. Items too far gone are sold to textile recyclers who turn the fibers into rags, rugs, and the like.
        Some charitable organizations ship textiles overseas or shred them. Whatever you choose to do with your old textiles, do remove them from the waste stream to reduce our trash tonnage.
        So, remember, that paint-stained T-shirt or threadbare towel still has life to it - it can be reused, repurposed or recycled to see another day.
