DuPage County has partnered with eWorks and RewearAble to collect clothing and textiles for reuse and recycling. RewearAble is a non-profit that provides jobs for adults with disabilities. 

Items that can’t be recycled will be turned into cleaning/painting rags or reused in insulation, packing material, and carpeting. 

Acceptable items: 

  • clothing
  • shoes
  • sheets
  • bedding
  • towels
  • other household textiles

No heavily soiled items. Shoes must be matched and tied together. Items must be bagged.

Warrenville's next recycling event is scheduled for May 6, from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Bower Elementary School. Learn more at: Shredding Day with Electronics Recycling Event

On March 18, Lisle has a Sustainable Saturday Recycling Event
