Union Square has a clothing and textile collection station sponsored by GrowNYC.org. Textile and clothing can be dropped off at this location on Mondays and Saturdays only. They accept clean and dry clothing, paired shoes, bedding, linens, hats, handbags, belts, fabric scraps 36" x 36" or larger and other textiles. They do not accept rugs or carpeting. This initiative benefits the Council on the Environment.
