Starting in November 2022, MA law began requiring recycling of textiles.
Thanks to our DPW, residents can use the new textile donation box at the City's Convenience Center at 340 East Britannia St. to dispose of unwanted shoes, clothing, bedding, etc.
Residents can stop in on Wednesdays and Fridays from 7AM - 1PM and Saturdays from 8AM - 3PM and donate clean, dry footwear, clothing, accessories, linens, stuffed animals, etc.
The City of Taunton has partnered with Bay State Textiles to provide an outlet for textile recycling and fundraise for the City's public school system. In addition to the box at the Convenience Center, there are boxes at each TPS site.
Textiles cannot be set out curbside in the City's recycling carts. For more information regarding textile recycling or the City's solid waste and recycling services, please refer to the City's website https://www.taunton-ma.gov/283/Solid-Waste-Recycling or call the DPW at 508-821-1431.
