Clothes / Fabric Recycling
Sutton Massachusetts


You should never put any kind of fabric or clothing into the trash. Even if it's ripped or torn, even if it's stained, somewhere in the world that fabric is of high value. Many places need rags for a variety of projects and your ripped shirt could be the perfect solution.

There are MANY ways to recycle clothing in Sutton. Here are just a few.

BigBrother BigSister At-House Pickup
Every month or so the BigBrother BigSister sends a truck throughout Sutton, going TO YOUR HOUSE to pick up any unwanted clothing and other items! It is the ultimate in easy. You get an email when they are coming around next. You respond and say you'll have things for them to pick up. You put the items in a box at the end of your driveway. Voila! The items are taken and put to good use. I highly recommend supporting the BBBS and this is just so easy to do. Sign up for their mailing list!

Salvation Army Worcester
The closest Salvation Army location is in Worcester, with a thrift shop at 72 Cambridge Street. You can bring your items to that location and know they'll be put to good use.




St. Vincent de Paul Drop Box
Just behind the Sutton post office on Route 146 is a St. Vincent de Paul drop box. If you're in the post office mini-mall and take a left onto Boston Road, the drop box is now immediately on your left in that little parking lot.

Their mission statement from their website is: "The St Vincent de Paul Society aspires to be recognised as a caring Catholic charity offering 'a hand up' to people in need. We do this by respecting their dignity, sharing our hope, and encouraging them to take control of their own destiny."

Planet Aid Drop Box
Located on Route 146 Southbound, by the canoe store, the Planet Aid drop box lures in donors to their for-profit use. Yes it is better to give your clothes to them rather than throw them out, but you only have to drive a few more blocks south to get to the St. Vincent de Paul box! Here is a note about Planet Aid from the CharityWatch.org website: "Planet Aid, a nonprofit group famous for its yellow outdoor collection boxes, calls the cost of collecting worn clothes, which it later sells, a program service expense. Its tax form states that its purpose is "To support development projects ... and protection of natural habitat through the recycling of used clothing." It would be like Wal-Mart claiming that its main purpose is to help low-income people have a higher standard of living by selling them less expensive merchandise. Planet Aid raises almost all of its funds by selling the donated items, rather than giving them to needy people. It only distributed $8,000 of donated goods of the $8.7 million it spent in 2004, according to its most recently available tax form.".

I would advise AGAINST using the Planet Aid drop box, but again, anything is better than putting clothing items into the trash.
