Recycling & Rubbish

Please recycle your textiles in the Bay State Textiles bin at the Attleboro Recycling Center:

 Afterlife of textiles:

 45% Reused

 30 % turned into wiping clothes

 20% converted to fibers

 5% is contaminated and is waste



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.
