Clothing & Textile

Clothing & Textile Brochure

You cannot put clothing & textiles in your Braintree Trash Cart or Recycle cart as these items are not recycled curbside effective 7/1/2022 per DEP Regulations.
There is a Textile Collection Box at the Residential Drop-Off Center at 257 Ivory Street and many schools and churches. Textile recycling generates money for Braintree, saves money on disposal fees, helps the environment and also saves room in your cart! 95% of all textiles can be recycled or reused. Donate or recycle, don’t throw it in the trash.

Please bag all items before placing them in the recycling container.
