Textiles Recycling

If your clothing isn't suitable for donation to a thrift store, please consider one of the recycling options below.


Old textiles can be cut up and used for projects like quilts, rugs, and patchwork, or you can use them for rags around the house. Residents can also drop off textiles for recycling at the South Coast Recycling and Transfer Station and Marborg’s Recycling and ABOP center in Goleta. Click here for a complete list of drop-off sites and more information on the textile recycling program.


Paired shoes (tied together if they have laces) can also be dropped off at the locations below.  Additionally, check out our athletic shoe recycling page for athletic shoes that are beyond wearable.
