Community Recycling Announces Expansion into New Market

Fairless Hills, PA (PRWEB) November 21, 2013

Delaware residents will now have more convenient choices and options available to recycle their gently used clothes, shoes, bags and belts with reuse in mind. Today, Community Recycling announces its expansion of operations into Delaware with CR Bins. Community Recycling has been providing local communities throughout the mid-Atlantic with clothing recycling bins, successfully diverting millions of pounds of material from landfills every year for over 13 years.

“Our goal is to make it as convenient and easy as possible for the residents of Delaware to join the Reuse Movement,” said Ira Baseman, President of Community Recycling. “We have set out on a mission to celebrate the cause of clothing recycling, with reuse as the central feature that connects people all over the world.”

Community Recycling is proud to be a for-profit clothing recycler with a focus on reuse, transparency and connectivity. Offering communities conveniently placed CR Bins is a zero-cost, easy way to get residents to recycle more clothes and related materials rather than landfilling this much needed product. It’s also a great way for local businesses to serve as host sites and make recycling easy for their customers. Recently, the US EPA released a study* stating that clothing recycling has among the highest levels of impact on reducing greenhouse gasses. This news helps to fuel the Reuse Movement and move towards a day when ‘Every day is America Recycles Day.’

“We are looking to see a nationwide mind-shift in clothing recycling,” said Lance Charen, VP of Business Development and Partnerships Community Recycling, “as more and more people jump on the Reuse Movement and extend the lifecycle of these much needed products. Our culture is evolving in thinking differently about responsibly taking care of our shoes, bags and clothes as we finish with them. Trash is just not an option anymore.”

That is why Community Recycling is transparent in their actions. Every CR Bin has a phone number where a live person will either answer or return your call. CR Bins are serviced regularly by full-time employees of Community Recycling; never sub-contracted out. All of the clothing collected for reuse is sold domestically to thrift shops around the country, or internationally to family owned businesses and markets that also offer affordable options. It is important to our business model that people who recycle with Community Recycling know and understand where their clothes travel and how 70% of the global population depends on quality, affordable second-hand things.

While CR Bins are new to Delaware, Community Recycling has been doing great work with some of their other innovative recycling programs across the state. ShoeBox Recycling, a program where one can recycle shoes and find a SoleMate, has hosts across the state collecting over 4,000 pounds of shoes to date.

Community Recycling works tirelessly to create programming that is convenient, innovative, and helps to make clothing recycling a way of life. Look for CR Kids, a school program that allows kids to learn and connect with diverse cultures as they build a foundation of skills around clothing recycling. CR Campus will also be headed to Delaware as a sustainable and customizable green move-out solution for campus and university life.

“We want people to start thinking about household sustainability all the time,” Baseman continued. “When people think about where their things will go and that others will reuse them, we make the world a smaller, friendlier and greener place. People Recycling for People.”
