Curbside Textile Recycling Program Launched In Pennsylvania

Fairless Hills, Pa.-based textile recycling company Community Recycling and Newtown, Pa.-based
waste hauling company George Leck and Son Inc. have partnered to launch a curbside textile
recycling program in Pennsylvania.

The program provides residents in the Bucks County, Montgomery County, Northeast Philadelphia
and Southern Lehigh County areas with a convenient way to recycle gently used apparel, shoes, bags
and belts. Residents simply package textiles to be recycled in any plastic or paper bags and then
place the bags in the provided Community Recycling reusable carryalls at their curbs. George Leck
and Son picks up the carryalls and leaves the residents with additional carryalls for the next
pickup. All collected textiles are sold inexpensively to be reused by people around the world,
according to the companies.

“Involving our residential customers in a convenient and easy solution to textile recycling
is important,” said Tina Leck, George Leck and Son. “Our ultimate goal is to offer our clients the
complete spectrum of services for all of their waste and recycling needs.”
