If you are looking for a place to donate your old clothing items, the green Clothes Bin located behind Central High School is an option. The Clothes Bin’s mission is to help the environment by providing a convenient way for people to dispose of unwanted clothes, shoes, and textiles.

Clothes Bin is a for-profit recycling company that works with for-profit and non-profit entities that collect, manage, and distribute clothes and other recyclables. Their efforts benefit the economy through market creation, small business promotion, job creation, and charitable fundraising. The recycling industry provides a noteworthy source of revenue while simultaneously helping to reduce the world’s carbon footprint. Their recycling programs make it easy for non-profit and for-profit companies to give discarded clothes and other recyclables a second life.

“I believe the Clothes Bin will most definitely have an effect on the Harrison community. We have already seen multiple community and school members donating to the bin and I cannot wait to see it grow,” revealed Senior Jake Johns.

The Clothes Bin has helped many organizations raise money through recycling, such as The Central Digest.

“The Central Digest receives seven cents per pound of clothing donated in the Clothes Bin. It is not a lot, but it adds up,” explained Johns, the Central Digest’s Copy Editor.

The installation has probably made some people wonder if word of mouth will be enough to ensure that the bin is being put to use.

“I believe that [the Clothes Bin] is already popular with our community. In all honesty, students are not going to get excited over donating clothes. Community members and parents will be the most excited, and that is what we have seen so far,” elaborated Johns.
