William Latter School

Breathe new life into your old clothes!

William Latter School is renewing its partnership with the Super Recyclers to raise children’s awareness of the benefits of recycling and fund end-of-year activities for Cycle 3 students! Families, friends, get involved and drop off your clothes during the week, from May 17 to 23, directly at the school, located at 1300, rue Barré, Chambly (Québec) J3L 2V4.

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. Why not let your school take advantage of that?
  • 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.
