    100% cotton fabric can be composted.

    It would help if your 'clothing recycling locator' didn't lead to a 404 error page. Goodwill in my area WILL NOT take worn out clothing to be recycled. All in all, this article is utterly useless.

      Gentle reader, did you realize this article is four years old? In the intervening years, they have stopped taking rags because there is currently no end user.

    Check out the companies who put clothing donation bins at the supermarket or laundromat...I am lucky they they do recycle fabrics so its easy for me to drop off when I am doing my shopping (Put them in a bag labeled "please recycle")

    certain clothes that are worn out can be ripped in strips and used as tomato plant ties. You can use old sweaters to make a dog bed out of it.... check on-line for directions. I use old towels to put on my car seats when my dog rides along with me. Also, some of my old clothes that are not worth donating, gets used as rags. Better to be practical than waste. Oh.... one more thing that I can think of is that I have used some clothes for making doll clothes for my grand daughter. It was not exactly Barbie doll quality, but she loved it and was thankful and happy with what I had given her and it made me happy too.

    I use old clothing as dust cloths, also to wash the car. Cotton undershirts are great,anything that is 100 percent works well
