Clothes recycling is a part of textile recycling. Each year a lot of used clothes are waiting for disposal. Due to environment awareness and landfill pressure, it is necessary to sort them out for reuse or recycling. Various charities also contribute their efforts through used clothes collection programs.

A good amount of garments can be reused. They can be exported to developing countries or sold in thrift shops domestically. The rest rags and fiber will be baled for recycling process.

  1. Sort out rags and fiber in different items for different recycling solution

Normally only highly experienced and skilled workers can do it well because different items have different recycling and process solution. For example, you can sort natural textiles in term of color. So there is no need to re-dying. When used clothes are torn into fibers, they can be processed for use in mattress production or produce filling materials for furniture padding, panel linings, loudspeaker cones and car insulation etc. If it is polyester-based material clothes, the recycling process will be quite different. When removing zippers and buttons, it needs to shred clothes into small fabrics and then granulated and extruded into pellets for new product production.
