JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling (ISWR) announced today that they are accepting textiles for recycling after suspending the program in July.

Public-facing textile bins can be found at the Recycling Center near the office door and are available 24/7.  ISWR’s textile recycling partner, “Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah” are struggling to get clothing donations at this time. Individuals or businesses with large volumes of textiles for recycling should call ahead at 307- 733-7678.

ISWR asks the community to follow these guidelines to ensure the longevity and success of the textile recycling program:

DO’s
  • Textiles should be clean, dry, and odorless
  • Linens, curtains, and blankets are accepted
  • Reusable purses, bags, belts, and shoes are accepted
  • The occasional missing zipper or button is fine
  • Please drop textiles in bags to assist with moisture control
DON’TS
  • No longer accepting raw/ragged materials
  • Stained clothing should be kept to a minimum
  • Bed pillows are not accepted
  • No carpets, grease rags or solvent-soiled items are accepted
