"What does recycled clothing become?"

If clothing isn’t still useable, it’s typically sent to recyclers to be broken down and reused. Clothing can become anything from cleaning rags and carpet padding to rubberized playgrounds and insulation.

For information on how and where to safely recycle these items see Recycling Alternatives on our Residential Recycling page.
