Clothing & Textiles Drop Off Locations

Dual Textile Bins Pic 2021
Currently we have 69 collection bins located at over 50 sites throughout Lake County. Many of these sites are available to you 24/7. We could reach your neighborhood next! Contact your Village or City to find out!  If you are a church, school, business or other organization that would like to become a host site and be a part of this wonderful community effort to offer this responsible, environmental resource to your members, families, employees, congregants, etc., please contact 847-377-4954.  

This is a full-circle program and your new, gently used donations (which will be reused) allow us to continue program operations and recycle any worn-out items we receive, as well as support community and environmental education, outreach. There are also opportunities for community and corporate groups and organizations, as well as schools, to work with SWALCO on special collection drives and events. 

With limited landfill capacities and a mission to deter materials from them, we must all look for alternative ways to divert these items. As you can see we currently have sites at Village Halls, Public Works and other community buildings, Fire Stations, Park Districts, Fitness Centers, Senior Centers, Businesses/Offices, Schools, Churches and others.  You, your organization or community can be part of the efforts!
