American Textile Recycling Services (ATRS) is proud to partner with Keep Phoenix Beautiful as the exclusive textile recycler for Earth Day Phoenix on Monday, April 22 from 11:00 a.m.- 1:30 p.m. at the Cesar Chavez Plaza in Downtown Phoenix.
In celebration of the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day, ATRS Recycling is joining forces with Keep Phoenix Beautiful to share the environmental and charitable benefits of textile recycling with the Phoenix community. Exhibitors and visitors attending the fest are encouraged to bring a bag of unwanted clothes, shoes, toys, and household items to be recycled. Textiles collected at Earth Day Phoenix will raise funds to support longtime ATRS charity partner Weldon House whose mission focuses on improving the lives of women and children in the Phoenix area.
“The ATRS textile recycling partnership provides Weldon House with its highest form of annual funding,” says Thelma Ross, Director of NCADD and Weldon House. “In addition, neighborhood donations provide virtually all the clothing, cookware, silverware, linens, towels, toys, cookbooks, vacuum cleaners, furniture and much, much more that is needed for our mothers and children in residence.” In addition to ATRS Recycling, other sponsors of Earth Day Phoenix include Republic Services, Nestle Waters, and U.S. Airways.
ATRS is the fastest growing textile recycler in the U.S. Its socially responsible business model provides free textile recycling solutions for the public, job stimulation for local communities and abroad and much-needed funding for worthy local charities. With branches in 11 markets including Texas, Florida, Michigan, Tennessee, Atlanta, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado and Southern California, ATRS Recycling is committed to keeping textile waste from local landfills and promoting a greener tomorrow.
