[ARCHIVED] Textile Recycling Changes Begin November 1, 2022

Textiles Recycling

In addition to the Commonwealth's waste ban changes regarding mattresses and box springs, starting November 1, 2022 textiles will also be required to be recycled.  

Taunton Public Schools has been partnering with Bay State Textiles to provide an outlet for textile recycling and fundraise for the City's public school system.

Bay State Textile donation boxes are located outside of each Taunton Public School and accessible for public use.  

For every ton of textiles collected, Taunton Schools receives a rebate of $100!   Clean, dry footwear, clothing, accessories, linens, stuffed animals, etc. are acceptable items for recycling.  

Visit for more information about the program or to locate a donation box.

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 DPW page: or call the DPW at 508-821-1431.
