USAgain, the company that helps divert millions of pounds of clothing and textiles from landfills each year, announces the expansion of its operations in Southern California. USAgain provides residents with an eco-friendly way to discard unwanted clothing, shoes and other textiles in their conveniently located drop boxes. Their green and white collection bins are monitored with sophisticated technology and serviced regularly.

"We are thrilled to announce our expansion in southern California. We aim to provide an eco-friendly textile recycling option to residents, while supporting local commerce and education,” said Mattias Wallander, CEO of USAgain.

In 2011 USAgain plans to install over 600 new drop boxes across southern California. Bins will be installed in high-traffic areas, including at local businesses and schools. Additionally, the company will hire new drivers and Community Recycling Managers to oversee their increased operations.

USAgain, a leader in the textile recycling industry, with corporate headquarters in Chicago, is a for-profit company that recycles and resells unwanted clothing and other textiles. In 2010 alone, the company collected 56 million pounds of discarded clothing. USAgain operates over 10,000 collection bins in fifteen states. Their mission is to provide consumers with a convenient and eco-friendly option to rid themselves of excess clothing, which are then diverted from landfills.
