How can we reuse discarded linen in the hotel industry?

Donate them to violence against women and children charities.
Animal shelters, veterinarians, etc... will usually take donations for their animals!
You can donate them to homeless shelters or use them to make curtains, recover pillows, make tote bags, use one as a picnic blanket, paint drop cloth or even cut to use as cleaning rags. The sky is the limit. Speaking of Hyderabad, I needed some computer tech support help a couple of weeks ago and the technician lives in Hyderabad.
Some day centers have weaving looms & make rugs & pillows to sell. You might have some places in an area near you to donate some of your linens.

I have old mattress slip cover pad that goes on top of a mattress. It needs to be recycled. l live at zip code 18901, where would l take to? I rather not throw it away.
Many churches have bins in the parking lot for clothing to be picked up. These organizations also take clothing and linens that are not usable and recycle them.
I would check and see where your local thrift shop is , most do take linins and things, if it is in good condition then they will sell it at a reasonably price. Monies usually go to area charities.

I have a hotel and have a ton of left over towels, table cloths, and sheets. Any one have any ideas on how to recycle any of this?
