Let City Recycling Group show you how your community or groups unwanted clothing can serve the worlds less fortunate instead of needlessly filling landfills.
The Responsible Textile Recyclers
City Recycling Group is a company dedicated to protecting the environment and supporting our local communities while helping those less fortunate. We partner with local non profit 501(c)3 organizations, schools, religious groups, and property management companies to help raise funds by recycling second hand clothes and shoes. Clothes and shoes take up more space than any other non-durable good in the solid waste stream, accounting for approximately 13.1 million tons of total waste per year in the U.S. alone.
That amounts to 70 pounds of clothing contributed by the average person. CRG is one of the many recycling companies who help to keep about 4 billion pounds of textile waste from entering landfills each year. Despite the fact that 4,000,000,000 lbs. looks like an enormous number, the sad fact is that it only accounts for around 15% of the total textile waste generated in the United States leaving about 11 million tons that go to our landfills and or incinerated. But it doesn't have to be that way...

We contribute to the environment by helping to keep millions of pounds of solid waste out of our nation’s landfills by making it safe, easy and convenient for communities to recycle used clothing, we would like to thank everyone who drops second hand clothes and shoes at our collection sites.
