Recycle Right

Clothing, coats, shoes, purses, belts, linens, and other similar items may be donated to many charitable organizations and buy-back shops in Franklin County. Clothing should be in good condition without rips, stains or holes before considering donation.


Worn-out, stained denim apparel can be recycled through specialized programs such as Blue Jeans Go Green Denim Recycling. Denim in any condition can be recycled and given a second life as a pet bed, industrial mattress, or insulation liners for meal delivery.

For in-person drop-off recycling programs, Madewell offers a denim recycling program. Bring in any brand of jeans and receive a $20 discount on a new pair of jeans. The jeans will be recycled into insulation for houses.
