Recycle Textiles at the Schools and Support the PTO

IMG_20150429_140814The Wayland PTO Green Team has partnered with Bay State Textiles to promote textile recycling and generate rebates for the PTO by hosting donation boxes at every school and at the Wayland Transfer Station.

Over 520 million pounds of textiles are disposed of at incinerators or landfills each year in Massachusetts, of which 95% can be reused or recycled. Turn your unwanted clothing, backpacks, shoes and linens into revenue for the Wayland PTO.

Donated items are accepted in any condition as long as they are clean and dry. Bay State Textiles takes “the good, the bad and the ugly.” Visit for a list of acceptable items. A good rule of thumb: if you can wear it, it’s an acceptable item.
