King County Solid Waste Division and Seattle Public Utilities launched the 2017 campaign for Threadcycle, a public education campaign to encourage the donation of clothing, shoes, and linens, in any condition except wet, for reuse and recycling. The official campaign period will run from March 1 - May 31. Donation locations all around King County want all of your clothes, shoes and linens – in ANY condition except wet. These worn out items are recycled into athletic equipment, insulation and more.
Even single shoes, socks, gloves and other items that are normally paired-up can be matched with other “singles” and worn by people who otherwise would not have those items to wear.
The only items to put in the garbage are those that are wet, mildewed or contaminated with hazardous material.
Learn where you can donate your clothes, shoes and linens for reuse or recycling, at King County’s Threadcycle website at kingcounty.gov/threadcycle.
