Wondering about whether a collector is registered as a charitable organization in Washington state?
Most collectors will have this information on their website, but you can always search the Washington Secretary of State’s website (external) to find out.

Some King County Recycling & Transfer Stations also accept all clothes, shoes, and linens.

Don’t put it in the curbside bin
Clothes, shoes, and linens do NOT go into local curbside recycling carts. These items can jam up machinery in recycling facilities. The exceptions to this are Bellevue, Bothell, Burien, Carnation, Issaquah, Maple Valley, and SeaTac (external links), which have special programs that take clothing at curbside, following specific guidelines – if you live in one of these cities, please make sure to consult their website for recycling guidelines.

Get a collection bin

Apartment complexes and other properties can play an important role by providing sites for the collection of clothes, shoes, and linens. For rental property owners, building managers and other housing professionals, having collection bins at a property is a great way to provide a service to tenants and support sustainability.

Collection bins can be obtained from these partner organizations
