FGR’s Response to the COVID 19 Virus:
FaircoGreentree Recycling Company is committed to the health and well-being our employees and the safety of our workplace and procedures. We are adhering to the guidelines and regulations put forth by the governors of Connecticut and New York. To ensure that our operations will continue, our drivers and warehouse and office staff are wearing masks and gloves. All bags are being picked up and bailed without opening or sorting. Bags being held for clients are placed in bins for storage. We are dedicated to maintaining our high standard of services while ensuring the personal health and safety of our employees.
Fairco-Greentree (FGR) is an environmentally-friendly, for-profit enterprise that works to reduce textile waste in an expanding industry. For over 30 years our innovative approach has reached consumers, schools and businesses across Westchester and Fairfield counties. We offer a growing range of solutions to support your specific organization’s needs to create fundraisers and revenue streams. By recycling clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding and towels, FGR is the sustainable salvage company providing easy, no cost, environmentally friendly and financially smart collection services. Our programs help to conserve our natural resources, reduce greenhouse emissions/air pollution, reduce water pollution and landfill waste. Your donated items become affordable options for those in need.
FGR is part of the growing textile collection industry across the US. By collecting and exporting clothes, shoes, bedding, etc. to struggling areas in the US and abroad, this industry can generate revenue, create jobs, benefit the environment and help to improve the lives of those in lower income areas in America and around the world. Many families depend on used clothing. Buying used clothes is not just an eco-friendly choice and a smart decision, but may also be the only choice for some families. Collection and resale keeps unwanted textile products out of our landfills where it can be reused by others.
FGR works with businesses, not-for-profits, schools, places of worship and others in our community to collect unwanted items. We then resell the discarded items to recyclers who sort the items and then export them to small towns along the Texas/Mexico border and into Central America. The used items are welcomed by those shopping in flea markets and lower income resale stores.
We are proud to be a new breed of for-profit businesses, which partners with not for profits and other community organizations. As part of our business practice, FGR strives to benefit the environment and reallocate unwanted textiles to those in need thus creating jobs and opportunities in the secondary marketplace.
Let us work with you to customize a donation program for your organization.
