Textile Recycling

Textiles

If you can’t reuse or re-purpose your clothes locally, bring them to Raven!

 

 

What we accept

Clothing
• Sheets
• Curtains
• Towels
• Other fabric textiles

We DO NOT take shoes, belts, suitcases, backpacks, purses, etc.

Drop off bagged clothing in the  red Donation Bins in our bottle depot during open hours:

9am-5pm, Monday – Saturday.

Please do not drop off items outside while we are closed. 

 

Textile recycling supports a local charity!

Half of the proceeds from this program are donated to the Whitehorse Firefighters Charitable Society!

 

Reuse is always better than recycling

When you’re looking to get rid of old clothing, shoes and accessories, first consider donating them. There are many local non-profit organizations as well as thrift and consignment stores that occasionally take donations of used clothing.

Reusing clothes locally is the best possible option for the environment and it supports your local community. Consider hosting a clothing swap with your friends to find ways to keep the flow of materials circular!

The Yukon’s landfills currently absorb between 200,000 and 300,000 pounds of reusable textiles every year. Since taking on the textile recycling initiative in 2017, we’ve diverted 365,000 pounds of textiles from the territory’s landfills!
