Acceptable Items for Textiles

Acceptable Items for Textiles

Loading the Green Totes

We have partnered with USAgain to divert textiles from the landfill.

We accept clean items that have put into clear or white trash bags. We load the truck by hand so please don’t overload bags as they tear when handled.

Please bag shoes separately; they are baled differently at the warehouse in Denver.

Accepted:  Clothes, purses, backpacks, belts, hats, blankets, sheets, curtains, towels, shoes and boots.

Not accepted:  Pillows, rugs, carpet and carpet padding.

Please note that local thrift shops are NOT a drop off spot for all used textiles.  They still can only accept, good, sellable items. Please click on The Thrift Shop of Aspen for a list of what they can and cannot take.

There is a USAgain Drop off box at the Rio Grande Recycling Center in Aspen if you only have 1 or 2 bags.

There is no charge for this service at the landfill or at Rio Grande. Thank you for your help in diverting valuable materials from the landfill.
