The BGA’s most visible events are our four collection drives each year.
Two of these drives are for textiles, in which members of the community are encouraged to visit our booth in the middle of Times Square to drop off any unwanted clothing, linens, shoes, and other items, which are then recycled by Wearable Collections. These drives collect dozens of bags full of textiles.
The other two drives are for electronic waste, in which the community disposes of thousands of pounds of materials, like old computers, phones, and batteries, which are then recycled by ERI.
All of the waste is collected free of charge and is given a new life instead of going straight into a landfill!
