Please bring your scrap and used fabric, small or large, and be a part of our 6th annual Recycle and Repurpose Collection at the NECPA Conference and Expo, January 21-23, 2016. Add your company to the growing list of NECPA members who are creating a “greener” North East by donating leftover and used fabric to this grass roots collection drive.

With the help of some great people and their businesses, the NECPA and Awning Cleaning Industries have successfully created a heightened awareness about new and existing options for scrap and used fabrics in your shops. In the past, most scrap and used fabrics were considered garbage and, as such, thrown out with little consideration for what that really meant. Today, there are several, greener options available with one of the biggest and best being the “Recycle My Sunbrella” program sponsored by Sunbrella. Scott Massey, Owner and President of Awning Cleaning Industries and Past President of NECPA, is once again offering his business location for collection, processing and shipping of scrap and used acrylic fabrics. Local companies can drop off, arrange a pickup or ship for less to this location as well as bring their donations to the NECPA Annual Meeting & Expo where Awning Cleaning Industries will have a box truck for collections on the expo floor.

Please look around your shop and consider how you can participate by bringing your:
  • Old Awnings and Boat covers
  • Scraps from Manufacturing
  • Unwanted Rolls of fabric
Small or large, any amount saved from a landfill makes a difference. We welcome you to discuss this effort with any of the NECPA Board members at the show. If you have questions prior to the show please contact Scott Massey.
Start a new shop tradition and add a do good, feel good piece to your experience at the NECPA Expo and Conference.
