Sharkx Sports Program – Monkland Community Centre

Breathe new life into your old clothes and help support Sharkx Sports Programs!

Family, friends, and member of the “Sharkx Sports Programs” get involved and drop off your clothing donations on Saturday, June 1, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., directly at the Monkland Community Centre located at 4410 West Hill Avenue, Montreal, Quebec, H4B 2S9.

The funds will be used to offer weeks at the day camp this summer and cultural outings to children from disadvantaged families in our neighbourhood.

Accepted materials: All the clothing for men, women and children, handbags, scarves, hats, gloves, furs, shoes, sheets, towels, curtains, leather accessories, as well as toys in good condition. We only accept what is in good condition and can be reused. Heavily soiled and dirty clothing will be removed before weighing. The Super Recyclers are not able to accept pillows, carpets and skates.

The Super Recyclers mobilize the community around an eco-socio-responsible movement to finance concrete projects through the collection of used clothing. The more young people, parents and the community get involved, the more it pays.

Why recycle clothing and textiles?

  • 190,000 tonnes of textiles are thrown away by Quebecers every year.
  • 2500 litres of water are used to produce a cotton t-shirt; for a pair of jeans, 11,000 litres are used.
  • It takes 1 to 5 years for wool gloves or socks to decompose. For leather shoes, from 25 to 40 years, and textiles, from 100 to 500 years.
