Donate First, Recycle Second
This program will target the textiles going into landfills, not items being donated to charities, churches, non-profits and other organizations. Keep Pearland Beautiful encourages residents to donate items to a local charitable organization.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that textile waste makes up 6% of all the material going into the landfill. That equals an estimated 26 million pounds of textile waste being thrown away every year. However, about 95% of it can be reused or recycled.
