Throughout the Northeast, Midwest, and Washington, D.C., Planet Aid has placed thousands of yellow bins. We divert approximately 90-100 million pounds of used clothing and shoes from being needlessly disposed of in U.S. landfills and incinerators each year. By dropping your clothing into a Planet Aid donation bin rather than throwing it away, you help to reduce the environmental impacts associated with disposal and new clothing manufacture.
We partner with local organizations that are helping those in need or otherwise strengthening local communities. To partner with Planet Aid to host a bin or a clothing drive in your community, contact your local Planet Aid office.
"Because of your hard work thousands of Kansas City's poor and homeless will have warm clothing this winter when the weather gets really bad.... For 29 years I have never had enough blankets and coats to give to the poor, but thanks to Planet Aid's efforts, we had an abundance this year and were able to give to several more agencies that were in need. In effect, what you did by collecting those items for us is saving lives in our community."
