RECYCLING SHOES & CLOTHING NEVER MADE MORE CENTS
Help us to be a part of diverting thousands of pounds of shoes, clothing, and other textiles from local landfills by filling our donation bin with your worn-out shoes, clothing, purses, belts, wallets, hats, caps, backpacks, hard toys, stuffed animals, and pots & pans. For every pound collected from you, the SMS PTA receives $0.15 per pound. The benefit to you? Neater closets, drawers, toy boxes, and kitchens, and the knowledge that less textile waste will end up in our local landfills.
