Make them recycle ready

To ensure clothing is resaleable, make sure they are:

  • clean and not stained
  • not covered in animal fur
  • not torn or frayed.

Where do your recycled clothes go?

The resaleable clothing that you donate to charities and second-hand retailers will be re-sold at stores and op-shops. In many cases, the profits will go to charity. Check with the store if you are unsure.

Non-resaleable clothing you provide to retailers such as H&M, Zara and Manrags, will be donated or recycled and transformed into new fabrics or materials, such as insulation for cars.

Want to recycle something else?

Search for another item to find out if it can go in your home recycling bin or if it needs to be dropped off somewhere else.
