Clothing, Shoes and Household Textiles Recycling Program

San Andreas, CA...Calaveras County Department of Public Works, Integrated Waste Management is pleased to announce that we have partnered with U’SAgain to recycle household clothing, shoes and textiles. U’SAgain is a for-profit enterprise promoting recycling and the responsible reuse of clothes, shoes and household textiles. U’SAgain is dedicated to helping the environment by extending the life of clothes and keeping them out of landfills. Clothing, shoes and textiles should no longer be placed in the trash...




Textiles that can be placed in the recycling bins include all clothing, shoes and other household textiles as listed below. The textiles can be of any condition whether soiled, stained or torn. All materials must be clean and dry; and dropped off in tied plastic bags. A sturdy plastic bag protects the clothes from dirt and simplifies handling.

All clothing, regardless of their condition, includes, but is not limited to:
Pants, shirts, blouses, skirts, dresses
Jackets, coats
Shorts, t-shirts
Underwear, socks, bras and slips
Hats, mittens, gloves, scarves
Shoes, sneakers, flip-flops
Bedding, sheets, pillows, blankets, table linens
Belts, purses
Robes, slippers
Shower curtains, drapes
Towels, washcloths
Stuffed animals
Yarn, cut cloth

The following are not acceptable in the textile recycling bins: Wet materials, mattresses, furniture, appliances, carpet, toys & trash. Please do not place any items outside of the bins.

Most plastic toys are recyclable and can be placed in your mixed recycling.
Mattresses and furniture should be taken to Rock Creek for disposal.
The County participates in a recycling program for carpeting and padding at the Rock Creek Solid Waste Facility and there are 4 locations to recycle your appliances.

Local Donations

Donate your clothing and household goods to local non-profits and thrift stores that benefit your community. You can also receive a tax deductible donation. This recycler is an international organization that pays business owners stipends for placing their bins on business' property. Many Bay Area cities and counties have already begun restricting and eliminating these bins from their cities due to their blight and over-use. Do not support these for-profit bins in our mountain communities.

    Go to their website, www.CalaverasRecycles.org and see that it is not intended to take away from the local donations, but to divert the materials out of the landfill. Thrift stores don't want everything that is donated and these bins will provide a way to recycle (even for a profit) those materials. Please support the program. Just because the bay area folks have 'blight' doesn't mean the mountain folks will be the same.
