 Trash  Reuse

Pillows can either be reused or thrown away in the trash.

Throw pillows in reusable condition can be donated to local thrift stores for reuse. Contact specific locations for donation guidelines.

Bed pillows are generally not accepted at thrift stores or charities. They should be thrown way in the trash.

If a pillow is not reusable (i.e. torn, stained, or in bad condition) they should be thrown away in the trash.  

DO NOT put pillows in recycling bins as they can damage equipment at the recycling sorting plant.
