Greenmarket Clothing Collection
What We Accept:
Clean and dry clothing, paired shoes, linens, handbags, belts, and other reusable textiles. No scraps, rugs, carpeting, pillows, comforters, or luggage. Your contribution to the program is tax deductible.

What happens to materials donated?
Textiles are sorted into different grades: usable clothing, wiping rags, and material that will be shredded for low grade fiber products for applications such as car door panels and insulation.  Reusable clothing will be redistributed to markets where there is a demand for second hand clothing.  Your quality donations ensure the sustainability of the textile recycling program.

Over 3 Million lbs Collected Since 2007

The average New Yorker tosses 46 pounds of clothing and other textiles in the trash each year. All told, NYC residents discard 193,000 tons of textiles every year, at a cost to taxpayers and our environment. But with your help, landfills are going on a diet.

Textiles can be dropped off weekly at the following 31 Greenmarkets.  Please visit our recycling events page to find special one-day collections.

In cases of severe weather, markets may close early or be cancelled.  Please drop early and check our blog or follow us on social media for schedule updates.
