To continue our efforts in diverting textiles from landfill in Aurora, we have entered into a new contract with Diabetes Canada and Cornerstone to Recovery. Stained or torn textiles are also accepted, however, donated textiles must be dry and free of any medical or hazardous liquids such as grease/oil, blood and vomit.
Since June 2016 we have diverted 285,302 lbs of material from our landfill sites.
