Textile Collection Week Results!

Castro Valley Sanitary District’s (CVSan’s) most recent Textile Collection Week was another wonderful success! Between October 4th – 8th, CVSan residents set out bagged textiles at the curb for collection by Alameda County Industries (ACI) on their collection day. A grand total of 12,140 pounds of textiles was collected and diverted from the landfill! These textiles were donated to Recycle for Change, an organization that distributes the textiles for reuse and recycling. Great job to the CVSan community for helping to prevent this material from going to the landfill and for participating in the Reuse aspect of the 4Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot)!

The next Textile Collection Week will take place the week of June 6 - 10, 2022, on your regular collection day. Visit cvsan.org/Textiles for more information.
