Help keep textiles out of the waste stream. Donate clothing, shoes, and linens at the Bay State Textile Bin located within the Recycling Center at 29 Pond St North, Attleboro 02703.

A plastic bag from the grocery store takes between 500 and 1,000 years to decompose.  Most grocers and large retailers now accept plastic bags, wrap and film for recycling. Look for a bin near the front of the store.  Just by remembering to bring your own Eco-Friendly bag when you go shopping, you’ll be helping our environment in a very big way.
