Clothing and textiles can be made of a variety of fiber and/or synthetic fibers. Therefore, the recycling process for these items will vary depending the individual items material composition.
Departments with lightly used clothing or textile items should submit a Pick Up Request Form (PURF) to send these items to the Surplus Store. Students, faculty, staff and the general public can drop items off at the Surplus Store during regular business hours.
