Annual September Procyon Wildlife Textile Recycling Program a Huge Success!

Procyon Wildlife Centre Diverted Over 11 Tonnes Of Textile Waste From Landfills In 3 Years

In a press release issued by Black Ram Media Group Inc., it was announced that Procyon Wildlife Centre is being celebrated by family owned reclamation firm Textile Waste Diversion for diverting over 11 tonnes of textiles from landfill in three years.

Every September for the last three years, the wildlife rehabilitation centre has been participating in an annual fundraising campaign with the sustainable side effect of landfill diversion by collecting used clothing and other household textiles from the local community.

This program which runs during the month of September has many benefits:

  • provides much needed funds for Procyon Wildlife to care for injured and orphaned wildlife.
  • keeps items out of our landfills.
  • diverted items are repurposed; even ragged, torn and permanently stained items are accepted and shredded to be used in another capacity such as stuffing for toys or pillows.
  • every 1000 tonnes collected is estimated to create 7 direct and 15 indirect jobs.

Textile Recycling Fundraiser for Procyon Wildlife runs Sept 1st to Sept 30th.

OK folks! Time to start gathering every bit of fabric you no longer need and donate it to the Textile Recycling Fundraiser for the Procyon Wildlife Centre!!!
We also collect purses, luggage and all footwear, no matter what they are made of. The more we collect, the more money that comes back to Procyon so we can care for orphaned and injured wildlife. All items can be dropped off at the Procyon Wildlife Centre. If you do not live near Procyon, but are in the GTA area, please contact

We are also collecting used eye glasses and stuffed toys. Everything, no matter what condition, is appreciated. Items in good condition go to the needy, and items in bad condition are shredded to make stuffing for cushions, pet toys etc. So go through your closets and homes, and donate what you no longer need. Collection is taking place throughout the month of September.
