As of Dec. 2021, Westchester County DEF, in collaboration with HELPSY, has expanded the County's textile recycling program at the H-MRF. Accepted materials include any type of material composed of natural or synthetic fibers such as products made from wool, silk, linen, cotton, polyester, leather, vinyl, hemp, and rayon. Please bag all textiles prior to drop-off.

Drop-offs can be scheduled by convenient appointment online, or by calling the Recycling HelpLine at (914) 813-5425. The Recycling HelpLine is available seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
