Clothing Pickup

Helpsy Logo and CIty of Worcester City Seal Image

The City of Worcester has announced a partnership with Helpsy to offer a free and easy home pickup clothing recycling collection service for the local community. Home pickups save Worcester money on tipping fees and save the planet resources by keeping clothes out of the trash.

According to the EPA, only 15% of unwanted clothing ends up being reused, meaning the overwhelming majority of clothes end up in landfills or incinerators. Together, with your help we can increase the amount of clothing that gets a second chance to create a huge impact for our community and the planet.

How It Works

Repurposing your clothes with Helpsy's Home Pickup service is free and couldn't be easier. Just sign up at, bag up your unwanted clothes and Helpsy picks up from your front steps on collection day. Helpsy's only ask is that items are clean, dry and odorless by the time they get to your front steps. You can keep them that way by putting your clothing in a closed plastic bag; you can reuse ones you've got lying around the house!
