[GRRN] scrap clothing

Mon, 21 Jun 1999 16:28:00 EDT

Does anyone know of a market for scrap clothing generated in the Los Angeles
area. I am trying to help out a local rag maker. They get clothing tossed
out by the Salvation Army/Goodwill, go through it and pull out all leather,
vinyl, denim and yarn items, since they can't use these in their process.
All together it's about 10 tons per week of clothing going to the landfill.

The garments are in decent condition for the most part and seems a shame to
simply toss'm. I'd appreciate any leads!!
