Our Schools / Woodrow Wilson Middle / Textile Recycling Program

September, 2015

 

Woodrow Wilson Middle School has been asked by the recycling coordinator for Middletown, Kim O’Rourke, to pilot a textile or clothes recycling program. If successful, this program could be used at all the schools in Middletown. This would be an opportunity to bring in some money for school recycling programs to buy new bins, and promote recycling among the families and staff at our schools .

The program is called Bay State Textiles, out of Massachusetts.  It is currently being used in about twenty towns in Connecticut. They pay us $100 for every ton of textiles we collect for recycling. See the attached list for what are acceptable items. They range from jeans and shirts, to shoes, hats, and draperies. They have delivered a receptacle to the school. It has been designed with the RAM logo.  It has been placed near the beginning of the sidewalk that leads up to the main office.  Anybody can just drop off as they are driving, or walking, near the school.  

Please encourage family members and friends to participate. It is an opportunity to raise awareness about the need to keep textiles out of our incinerator as garbage, and improve the effort we all need to make for better reusing and recycling.
