Collection bins for clothes and shoes duke it out

  1. It is worth noting that USAgain is a for-profit, though it also sounds like they’re better about using all donated items than many of the charities. When possible, they resell usable garments — but everything else can be shredded and used for other purposes by textile recyclers. Presumably this is still profitable for them. That makes USAgain a good choice for recyclable textiles you wouldn’t give charity or they wouldn’t accept: cotton underwear, old towels, very worn jeans, etc.

    (Theoretically Rice County also accepts cotton for recycling, but you must drop it off in person. I doubt this is very popular.)
