There are even more opportunities for concrete action at the Festival, and organizers have invited trusted companies that care about the environment and do the right thing to participate. Did you know that clothes you throw away every year, can be recycled? Bay State Textiles will be on site to take any and all textiles and clothing–in any condition. Just wrap them in a plastic bag and bring to the festival for donation.
The Junkluggers provides an eco-friendly alternative to conventional junk removal with a goal to protect the planet one piece of junk at a time. The Junkluggers strive to donate and recycle on behalf of their customers, keeping as much as possible out of the landfill and providing customers with a tax-deductible receipt for any items donated. The Junkluggers are dedicated to enhancing our community by helping those in need with donations and protecting the planet with eco-friendly removal practices. The Junkluggers will have a truck ready to collect donations of furniture and e-waste at the Wilton Go Green Festival.
