The Park Forest Farmers’ Market will now offer clothing and shoe recycling services from 9 a.m. to noon every second Saturday through September.

The dates when accepted items may be dropped off are:
- June 14
- July 12
- August 9
- September 13

USAgain, a green, for-profit company committed to protecting the environment, conserving resources, and creating green sector jobs through the collection of textiles for reuse and recycling, has agreed to collect residents’ old shoes and clothing at the Market.

Items dropped off will be diverted from landfills to be re-worn, reused or recycled – reducing the carbon footprint of residents.

Accepted items include men’s, women’s and kids’ shoes, boots and clothing as well as gloves, hats, bags, purses and belts. Sheets, blankets, drapes and towels are also welcome.
