Did you know that your old clothing, plush toys, blankets, and other textiles can be reworn, recycled, repurposed or reused?
In Brandon, 1.4 MILLION Kilograms of textiles are purchased each year, with 85% ending up in the landfill.
Brandon is proud to soon be taking part in a pilot project to help reduce the amount of unecessary waste in landfills by recycling, reusing, and repurposing textiles. Unwanted clothing, tattered socks, and single shoes are among the large list of items we will be working to keep out of our landfill!
"A new pilot project coming to Brandon, Man., is encouraging people to divert unwanted fabrics, textiles and plush toys from the dump and toward special bins or thrift stores instead."
