Donate Your Textiles Curbside

Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan)’s next Textile Collection Week will be from June 3rd – 7th! During this week, set out your clothing and other textiles curbside to be collected for reuse.

Participating is easy. Set out bagged, clean textiles by 6:00 a.m. curbside on your collection day and ensure bags are visible to the Alameda County Industries (ACI) driver. Do not place bags behind or on top of carts. Textiles will be collected with a special vehicle that may service your block earlier or later than regular vehicles.

  • Single-family residents: Set out textiles on your regular collection day.
  • Multi-family residents: Check with your property manager for your textile collection day or visit org/Textiles.

Textiles include items such as clothing, towels, linens, bathmats, curtains, shoes, area rugs and carpet (no larger than 9’x12’). Unacceptable items include textiles that are wet, moldy, or have human biowaste, blood, toxic chemicals, or motor oil on them. No light-up shoes or light-up clothes.
