Warwick Mall donation event spotlights textile recycling [The Providence Journal, R.I. :: ]

Aug. 21--You can take your old clothing, sheets and towels -- even if they're stained and ripped -- and give them away Thursday at the Warwick Mall.

The event is meant to spotlight a new statewide initiative to recycle all "clean, dry, odorless" textiles instead of tossing them in the trash. It's a campaign being spearheaded by Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corp. to extend the life of the Central Landfill in Johnston.

Today's event runs from 4 to 7 p.m. in the mall parking lot at pole 15, next to Firestone and across from Target. Those who donate will be eligible to win mall gift certificates of $1,000, $500, or $250 donated by the textile companies participating in the event.

The landfill operators in partnership with the owners of most of the collection bins around the state are trying to raise awareness that donations of most textiles are encouraged, not just clothing nice enough to be worn again. Items that are ripped and soiled can often be sent overseas, where they are reassembled or processed into valuable products.

The outfits that will have bins at the mall today include Big Brothers Big Sisters, Goodwill, Kiducation, Planet Aid, Salvation Army, Planet Aid, Mint Green Recycling Associates and St. Vincent dePaul.
