What’s The Deal With That New Donation Box In Front Of The Middle School?

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Educational Foundation has partnered with Baystate Textiles to raise funds through a new ongoing textile recycling rebate program.

Bag up any of your unwanted footwear, clothing, accessories, linens and stuffed animals and place them in the new donation box located outside the West Intermediate School and Wilmington Middle School.  Donations can be in any condition as long as they’re clean and dry.

The Wilmington Educational Foundation will receive a rebate of $100 for every ton of textiles collected.  The donation box will be emptied weekly.  Donation boxes will be placed at additional Wilmington schools if this pilot program is successful.
