Textile Recycling

New Pilot Program with Planet Aid
Textile Recycling Program

Mayor Arthur Vigeant and Marlborough Department of Public Works are pleased to announce that the City will be participating in a textile recycling pilot program. This program will be in conjunction with Planet Aid contracted by the state to facilitate keeping textiles out of landfills. Their signature yellow bin will be placed in the Department of Public Works parking lot at 135 Neil Street.  

Items that you may donate include shirts, pants, jackets, suits, gloves, socks, undergarments, handbags, and backpacks in any style, age or condition. Household textiles include curtains, drapes, sheets, blankets, comforters, towels, linens, pillows and rugs. Footwear can include shoes, sandals, sneakers, cleats, boots, flip-flops and slippers. The bin will be closely monitored and emptied regularly.

Wet or moldy and items contaminated with hazardous materials are not allowed.  

For more information, please contact the Mayor’s Office at 508-460-3770.
