Supporting forward-thinking recycling efforts that provide innovative solutions to reducing waste is what we're all about at Sedona Recycles.

In keeping with our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle items that would otherwise be buried in the local landfill, we are now helping to provide a second life and a second chance for unwanted garments and textile goods.

Since partnering with American Textile Recycling Services (ATRS), we have been accepting used clothing, shoes and toys at our main center on Shelby Drive.

For your convenience, we have three clothing/textile recycling bins in front of the Center, as well as those in the Village.

Textile recycling is big news and becoming very trendy. By donating your unwanted goods and recycling textiles with ATRS, you are improving the quality of life for those in need and protecting the environment for future generations.

Even torn, ripped and stained textiles are repurposed as rags, seat stuffing, thread and many other uses.

Where does the clothing go?

100 percent of donated clothing is recycled. All re-usable items get a new home. After being separated and sorted, they are sent to those in need in emerging nations who do not have access to or cannot afford new clothes and shoes.

ATRS is providing jobs and millions of tons of textiles are being kept out of the landfill every day. Additionally, ATRS has also donated over $3.5 million to over 2 dozen amazing charities. It's about seeding a greener future for generations to come. It's a win/win for everyone.

It's also about helping others, and Sedona Recycles is here to support their efforts. We hope you will join the trend knowing that you can make a difference. Next time you clean out your closet or garage think of recycling those unwanted items.

Thanks for such a great article and for providing the opportunity to recycle and reuse more items that I would otherwise throw into the trash.
I love that sight in the VOC. It is so convenient and I can do my recycling, grocery shopping, pick up my dry cleaning and have lunch in one easy day.
