Combatting Textile Waste: In the last year, the City of Sanford worked with Apparel Impact to divert 134 tons of clothing from landfills. That is approximately the weight of 60 pickup trucks. In its Annual Report, Apparel Impact’s stats showed Sanford achieved the second-highest tonnage of reusable textiles diverted in the State of Maine in 2022. Sanford was second to Waterville, which diverted 143 tons of apparel. The Apparel Impact Bin is located at the Sanford Transfer Station and residents can drop off clothing, shoes, accessories, sheets, and towels. All items must be dry and contain no odor or mold. Items DO NOT need to be in wearable condition. Public Works Director Matt Hill said, “I’d like to recognize the diligence and hard work put forth by Public Works employees at the Sanford Transfer Station who made this achievement possible.”
