Effective November 1, 2022 textiles are prohibited from the trash in Massachusetts and must be placed into a textile recycling drop box or brought to another drop off, such as a local Salvation Army Thrift Store. Every municipal transfer station in Franklin County has a textile recycling drop box. Any textiles not deemed appropriate for resale in the charities' stores will be sold to a textile recycler. Moth-eaten, torn, and stained fabrics are all acceptable. However, all items must be CLEAN and DRY. For more information, see: textiles.
