Recycle/Upcycle

Textile Recycling
Not sure what to do with the stained tablecloth you can't donate? How about all those baby clothes that have made their way through all your children?  In any condition, 95 percent of all textiles can be recycled or reused. Textile recycling bins are located at the front of the school. The Wakefield Public School system earns money from your recycling donation.
