Your Community Textile Recycling Partner

Green City Recycler is a textile recycling company that diverts used clothing, shoes, and other household items from the landfill. Through our efforts, we hope to reduce the millions of pounds of textile waste finding its way to the local landfill. Our program has helped communities and municipalities achieve their environmental goals.

Core Values

We strive to decrease the environmental burden of post consumer textile waste. Billions of pounds of textiles find their way to the landfill each year, even though nearly 100% of these textiles are recyclable.

Our program is based around the communities we service. By delivering convenient textile recycling we help communities reach their recycling goals. Community outreach, education, and fundraising are integral to our textile recycling program.

By implementing recycling and waste diversion practices today, we hope to prepare future generations for the environmental struggles of tomorrow.

How are Textiles Diverted?

Underprivileged Markets 65%
Raw Material Processing 23%
Industrial Rags 12%
