Hendersonville, N.C. — Did you know that the average person generates up to 80 pounds of clothing waste a year, with the majority of this ending up in our landfills? Donating your used clothing, textiles, and other household goods is beneficial for the community and the environment. If your clothing or textiles are torn, stained, or too worn for reuse, they can be recycled. Worn clothing and textiles are processed back into fibers for reuse in products such as carpet padding, insulation, and wiping cloths.
August 17 is National Thrift Shop Day and MountainTrue, The City of Hendersonville Environmental Sustainability Board, and The Hospice Home Store of Hendersonville invite the community to help reduce the amount of waste in our landfills. Residents are asked to bring clothing and textiles in bags labeled as recyclable fabric, unopened toiletries that will be sent to the VA Medical Center in Asheville, and other household goods to the Henderson Hospice Home Store located at 215 N. Main Street, Hendersonville, NC on August 17, 18 or 19. Volunteers will be available between 11AM-2PM on those days to assist you and discuss recycling programs in our community and how donating used goods is beneficial to the environment and economy.
