Since January 2009, Wearable Collections and GrowNYC have partnered up bring more textile recycling options to New Yorkers. We are honored to have such an esteemed partner and be able to participate in the weekly markets that have had such a positive impact in supporting the local community. We are happy to be able to add one more component to our collections and provide our service to those who are unable to recycle clothing inside their buildings. The donation of these items helps support GrowNYC’s environmental and greening programs.

Textile collections at Greenmarkets is a partnership between two of GrowNYC’s programs, the Office of Recycling Outreach and Education(OROE) and Greenmarket Farmers’ Markets. OROE’s mission is to aid the Department of Sanitation in its efforts to meet Mayor de Blasio’s aggressive recycling goals.
