When the USAgain bins near the Swap Shop and transfer station building fill up, the contents are removed to a truck like this one.
Usable or unusable clothing, shoes, linens & accessories (backpacks, purses, hats, gloves, belts, etc.) can be recycled in these bins.
Recycling textiles provides two benefits to the town:
1) a reduction in the amount (and cost) of solid waste hauled way;
2) payment of $200/ton for textiles collected.
Recycling textiles also saves natural resources and is a source of affordable clothing for people world-wide.

Editor’s note: There’s another USAgain bin at Person-to-Person on the grounds of St. Luke’s Church, 1864 Post Road. And here’s a locator for bins on the USAgain website.
