has partnered with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County to provide
more recycling opportunities. The Wauconda Textile Recycling Bin was
delivered on Friday, April 18th. The bin is located at Public Works
adjacent to the electronics recycling bin.
It is estimated that nearly 85% of all clothing and textiles end up
in landfills in the U.S. today. Textile and clothing waste is a
significant problem in our country. It is estimated that anywhere
from 5-10% of all waste that is sent to municipal landfills is
comprised of textiles. Let's do our part to recycle these clothing
items and save our landfill space.
