World Wear Project Recycle Bin
Harrington PTA has partnered with World Wear Project to host a textile recycle bin on campus! Your contributions of items including clothing, shoes, belts, purses, wallets, hats, caps, backpacks, hard toys and stuffed animals, will be recycled as secondhand clothing, processed into wiping rags or converted into fiber. Not only will you be doing a good thing for the environment by keeping these items out of landfills, you will also be helping to raise funds for our school!
Damaged items are welcome. Items NOT accepted are: furniture of any kind, knives, items made of glass, kitchen appliances, appliances with cords.
