Raise Money for your Team, School or Non-Profit
Americans throw away 16 Billion pounds of textiles (clothing, shoes, linens) every year. Turn these throwaways into cash for your organization.
Bay State Textile Corp is a Massachusetts based recycling company. Over the last several years Bay State Textile has been working with several municipalities with diverting their post-consumer textile waste away from the general waste stream.
Did you know that Americans discard over 16 billion pounds of post consumer textile waste every year? This is primarily made up of clothing, household linens, and shoes. Less than 25% of the 16 billion pounds is reclaimed. It is sold in thrift stores and exported to several countries; primarily third world countries.
The Bay State Textile program is a win, win, win program for everyone.
First, you can turn these throw outs into revenue for your municipality or non-profit. We all realize that school programs are being cut for financial reasons. We also know that parents can write out so many checks to help subsidize school programs.
Second, the community benefits. Dumping fees are on the rise and municipalities need to reduce costs when they can. Recycling does this! It reduces solid waste dumping costs and turns this recycled clothing into new sources of revenue.
Finally, it is a win for the environment as a whole. Just think of all the natural resources used to produce all the raw materials when manufacturing clothing. Reclaiming these textiles also creates positive opportunities for poor families all over the world.
Bay State Textile Corp can tailor a textile recycling program for your school, civic organization, or your municipality. We have been in business since 2006. Our management team has over 40 years combined experience in the fabric recycling industry.
