Event Details


Recycling Day

When: Apr 27, 2024
From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Details: TODAY ONLY!

Bring your home textiles to be sent to Debrand, a recycling facility that makes insulation, rags, and energy out of "unusable" textiles. This is bedsheets, towels, torn clothing, etcetera. For $3 per pound, drop these off with us and we'll take care of the rest.

Please remove as many buttons, tags, zippers, and other plastic pieces as you can. These pieces cannot go in the shredders and slow the recycling process. We are charged a fee for each "irritant".

By taking part in this service, you're helping to reduce Canada's massive textile waste.

Due to limited space, we are only accepting recycling materials one day a month. Thank you!
