FAQ’s

What textiles are acceptable to recycle?

What items are not acceptable to recycle?

Are you a Charity or Non-Profit?
Phoenix Fibers is a for-profit company that supports many local charities and other non-profits through our fundraising programs.  Though we are not required to, what we pay our partners is overt and upfront.  We do not state the ambiguous “A percentage of the proceeds goes to…”  line that so many others like to use.  We have nothing to hide and will tell you if asked.  We are proud of the work we do and the money we raise for those in need.

How much money can we raise?
The simple answer; as much as you want.  The amount you can raise is solely based on the amount collected.  Your organization is paid per pound, so the more you collect, the more you make.
