Please recycle your textiles in the Bay State Textiles bin at the Attleboro Recycling Center:
Afterlife of textiles:
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.
Recycling takes little effort on your part, for a big difference to our world.
