The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that textiles make up over 9% of the waste stream. Considering landfill costs average $60 per ton, the savings add up quickly when you choose Re-Purpose New Jersey (RNJ) to cover all your recycling needs.
Benefits of RNJ

No-cost environmental ed programs for schools.
Savings on disposal costs.
501(C)(3) tax-deductible receipts for taxpayers.
RNJ has partnered with communities in the central-New Jersey region and currently serves over a quarter of a million residents in Edison and Woodbridge Townships. We became aware of the opportunity to expand our program in other municipalities after their residents contacted us, asking why bins were not located in their area.
The RNJ program provides accurate and audited annual tonnage reports to the towns we serve, which the towns can use to apply for recycling grants from the state. Because RNJ is a program of the 501(C)(3) non-profit Edison Wetlands Association, we have the ability to provide tax-deductible receipts to each town's taxpayers.
