CIRCULAR TEXTILE WASTE SERVICE

INTRODUCTION

The Circular Textile Waste Service collects and diverts "good" and "waste" clothing plus commercial textile waste from landfill. 


Our supply chains then repair, recycle, re-sell plus re-purpose 100% textile waste into circular products for the auto, interiors, building, and fashion industries. 


We have partnered with a network of disability enterprises Australia-wide to create employment opportunities for new circular economy initiatives.

Circular Textile Waste Service

INTRODUCTION

The Circular Textile Waste Service provides a value chain of partnerships that capture, sort, dismantle and repurpose the textiles many times over using significant technological developments to create high value products used in the auto, architectural, building, fashion and interiors industries.


In 2016, 88,000 tonnes of clothing were recycled but a staggering 679,000 tonnes was sent to landfill. 


This is a massive waste of money and detrimental to human and environmental health - but it also presents a missed opportunity as we can collect and harness this raw material resource and reuse  into high value products, using zero chemicals, zero water minimising the ongoing impact of dangerous toxins and plastic microfibres coming from synthetic fabrics. 


The Circular Centre offers a Certification to help promote your business as Zero Textile Waste. Achieve this by becoming a Circular Textile Waste Solutions Provider or by using the service for your commercial textile waste. 


Work with the Circular Centre to be a service provider and offer some or all of our capture solutions to your customers and/or the public or use our Commercial Service to send your textile waste through our supply chains and keep it out of landfill.
