A partnership that's changing
the way we think about clothing.
The City of Norwich has always had a long-standing mission to provide and expand options for their residents to participate in and to make a difference.
Now Norwich has started a new initiative to combat the textile waste that is harming Connecticut's environment. In partnership with Apparel Impact, Norwich now hosts Apparel Impact bins and drop-off sheds at multiple Norwich sites to provide their residents and the general public with the opportunity to recycle their unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories and other household textiles. This program alone has an individual goal of reducing 276 TONS of textiles from Norwich landfills annually!
City of Norwich sites that now provide the opportunity for textile recycling:
• Norwich Senior Center 8 Mahan Dr. Norwich
• Norwich Public Works 50 Clinton Ave. Norwich
• Norwich Transfer Station 73 Rogers Rd. Norwich
