Clothing and Textiles
Clothing that's still in good condition is easy — many thrift stores and charity organizations will gladly accept it. If the clothing is too worn to be usable, there are still options. Lichtenstein says some of the same organizations will also take unwearable textiles, which they will send on to manufacturers to be made into new items, such as industrial rags for use in auto mechanic shops. Check with your local Goodwill or Salvation Army branch to see if this is an option in your town. Lichtenstein adds that a few communities will even pick up textiles curbside with your papers and plastics, so it's important to check on that option as well.
