The BE Green Machine – Fill the Bin!

Strategically located in the student parking lot, BE has “Green Machine”!
This is a convenient way to recycle clothes, shoes and textiles! This Earth-friendly initiative is a great way for BE to earn money for each pound of recyclables collected. The textiles are repurposed, recycled or reused!

Did you know that the average American throws away approximately 70 pounds of clothes, shoes and textiles each year? Most of these items end up in local landfills, which amounts to an astounding 16.9 billion pounds of preventable waste each year. Thanks to our new “Green Machine” aka Clothes Bin® there’s a better way to dispose of any unwanted clothes, shoes and textiles.

Recycling helps reduce our dependency on natural resources such as trees and animals. Keeping your household items out of local landfills creates an enormous positive impact on the environment.

So grab a garbage bag, fill it with hope and drop it in the bin!
Here’s a list of items that can be recycled:

  •  Clothes such as pants, jeans, skirts, dresses, suits, shorts, shirts, tees, tanks
  •  Outerwear such as coats, jackets, gloves, hats, scarves
  •  Footwear such as shoes, boots, heels, sneakers, sandals, socks, tights
  •  Undergarments such as bras, underwear, slips, camisoles
  •  Accessories such as hats, belts, ties, scarves, headbands
  •  Handbags, wallets, totes, luggage, backpacks, briefcases
  •  Linens such as towels, sheets, comforters, blankets, tablecloths
