I think I know the answer, but thought I'd ask in case someone had found some way to get rid of them that didn't involve putting them in the trash.

 

Most people didn't want them before, so with all that is happening, I'm sure they are unusuable.

 

I have more than I care to admit and they take up so much space!

 

I'm thinking I just have to start bagging them for trash a couple at a time.  

 

Any recommendations other than that are welcome!

Re: Any use for old pillows?

Do you mean old bed pillows? I donated some last year at the Salvation Army. They said they give them to organizations that help people and the pillows are used for things like propping up someones leg, etc. I was happy that I donated there.

I take mine to animal control, humane society and local rescue groups.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

I concur with others....SOME animal shelters ask for them.....

Had no idea.  I help with fundraising for several local rescues and never heard that. 

 

I will certainly check.

Yes, bed pillows.

 

I just assumed they would not want anything like that during the pandemic, but I could be wrong.

 

Thanks.

@Witchy Woman  Are there any white bins from Special Olympics in your community?  They take all textiles...including pillows. 

eta...for recycling
