Clothes and textiles

Textile collection can give new life to clothes and textiles. In the clothing containers in our housing areas, you can leave clothes and textiles,both whole and torn.

YES: Bedding, towels, clothes, shoes, hats, blankets, handbags, belts, and accessories.
NO: Carpets, umbrellas, pillows, suitcases, and items that are not textiles such as books and household goods.

Place your textiles in a standard-sized sealed bag and leave them in the clothing container. Larger bags/sacks get stuck and hinder the function of the clothing container.

What happens to the collected textiles?

The collected textiles are reused in aid shipments, and the surplus from textile sales finances other aid projects. For more information about Human Bridge's work, visit their website.
