At a time when global recycling markets are in flux, the market for textiles is growing and adapting to new reuse opportunities. Join WSRA for a behind-the-scenes look at how unwanted textiles move from drop-off collection sites to new homes and new products in neighborhoods around the world.

At this Washington Recycles Every Day (WRED) event, participants will learn from topic experts from every facet of the textile recovery, reuse, retail and recycling marketplace and tour Seattle Goodwill’s new Job Training and Education Center and main processing center, and Buffalo Industries.

As a special element of this WRED event, we are encouraging attendees to bring donations of unwanted clothing, shoes, linens, appliances and e-waste. Goodwill will have donation bins set-up near the event check-in table. If you bring a bag of donated goods, you will be entered into a raffle to win a gift certificate to Goodwill!

We look forward to seeing you there!
