Let’s Reuse-It Together

Did you know that the U.S. generates an average of 25 billion pounds of textiles per year? That’s about 82 pounds per U.S. residents. Of that 82 pounds only 15% gets donated or recycled and the other 85% goes to our landfills. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that textile waste accounts for nearly 5% of all landfill space.

Our mission is to make recycling in arlington easy and accessible so that every one of us can help protect our planet.

Our team collects, sorts and bundle each items so that everything can be recycled. By simply using our services you are doing your part to help preserve our environment

What We Do

Since 2016, we have been helping create collection hubs in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland, which we use to collect unwanted clothing and shoes. We then schedule a pickup and get these collected items to our sorting centers for evaluation to decide where they will finally head to. Almost 50% of collections that find their way to us are typically reused as clothing and sold in second-hand markets globally. Around 46% get upcycled as rags or shredded into fiber products, which are then used for different purposes like mattress stuffing, carpet padding, and home insulation. Around 4% can’t be repurposed, but we are doing our best to discover new solutions to reduce this percentage. Thus, we keep almost 96% of what we collect out of our landfills, while giving millions of discarded clothing items a second chance to be used.

What is Recycling?

Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into reusable materials.

How to become Eco-Friendly?

It’s as Easy as 1, 2, 3:

Sort through your clothes, shoes, kids clothes and shoes, toys and/or your houselhold textile and separate the ones you are no longer making use of. All items need to be in good reusable condition, no stains, no rips.
Place all the items ready to donated in a bag or box.

It is that simple!

Sustainability is our reponsibility

We pledge to keep our planet green by keeping your textile out of the landfill. Our goal is to give your unwanted clothes, shoes and toys a second chance by recycling it.

By recycling those items, we avoid sending reusable items to waste. Let’s Reuse it ensures the items are collected and reused, which in turn significantly cuts on environmental pollution.

Let’s Reuse It offers the following:

Collections from Buildings

If your residential building is in Washington, D.C., Virginia, or Maryland, you can request us to set up a collection bin. You will need to find us an easily accessible location in your building for the bin placement. Once we do it, you can distribute flyers or post banners to let your building’s residents know about the program and the location of the bin. After the bins are full, you can contact us, and we can schedule a pickup. Else, we could agree on a monthly or bi-weekly pickup after the bins have been positioned in your building.

Collection Drives

We are always excited to be part of a Drive. Donation drives are fun and an easy way to raise awareness of the importance of recycling. We will set up a table and collect all reusable textile, shoes, and toys.

Let'sReuse it comes to your door

Congratulations! You just finished cleaning up your closet and you are now ready to recycle what you will no longer use. “Reuse It” is the easiest and most convenient way to recycle without leaving your home. Too busy and don’t have time to drop off your items to be donated or don’t know where to recycle? No worries! We can help by collecting your unwanted clothes and shoes, kids clothes, shoes, toys and other household items. Let’s Reuse it comes to your home, business, or community and makes recycling attainable and enjoyable.

Once we receive your inquiry, we will send you a confirmation with a pick up date and time. We will do our best to accommodate and keep to any specific instructions.

In terms of pick up timing, think of us as the cable company with a 4 hour window period (8am to 12pm and 12pm until 4pm). Better yet, you can simply leave the bags by your front door, with the receptionist at the lobby or in a place clearly marked so that we can do a fly-by. While we may not be able to appear immediately at the touch of your phone, we plan on doing our best to work within our current confines to make this process as seamless as possible. We appreciate your patience and collaboration in making recycling a priority to keep our planet green.

What we are not able to reuse:

Currently, only 5% of all donated items are non-recyclable.
