Helpsy Textile Recycling Program

Helpsy also does home pickups

What Helpsy Accepts

Recycling clothing shouldn’t be hard. We’re here to help.

According to the EPA, only 15% of unwanted clothing ends up being reused or recycled, meaning the overwhelming majority of clothes end up in landfills or incinerators. Together, with your help we can increase the amount of clothing that gets a second chance to create a huge impact for our community and the planet.

Hooksett has partnered with Helpsy, a certified B Corp, to provide at home clothing recycling to residents. It saves the town money, you time, and the planet resources. Recycling your clothes with Helpsy’s Home Pickup service is free and couldn’t be easier. Just sign up at helpsy.co/hooksettnh, bag up your unwanted clothes, and Helpsy picks up from your front steps on collection day. Helpsy’s only ask is that items are clean, dry, and odorless by the time they get to your front steps. You can keep them that way by putting your recycling in a closed plastic bag, you can reuse ones you’ve got lying around the house!

You can recycle all of the below items in any condition with Helpsy.  Recycling is for everyone!
