Niagara Region offers programs for residents to donate or recycle acceptable textile materials free of charge.
Residents making donations are asked to bring items in garbage bags or cardboard boxes.
All items must be dry and free from mildew or hazardous contamination such as grease or oil. Materials that don't meet the criteria listed above for donation at the drop-off locations will be considered household garbage and subject to disposal fees.
Materials not suitable for retail sale, such as ripped, torn and unmatched materials, can be dropped off for recycling at:
Place these items in a separate bag / box, marked 'recyclable'. Humberstone Reusable Goods Depot doesn't accept ripped, torn or unmatched materials.
On-site donation or recycling of textiles is available to eligible multi-residential buildings with seven or more units (apartment and condo buildings) that have a superintendent on the premises.
Interested property managers or superintendents can call the Waste Info-Line at 905-356-4141 or toll-free at 1-800-594-5542 for more information and to determine eligibility.
