The Circular Textile Waste Service (CTWS) is the next step beyond recycling. Australia's only fully circular service that sends zero textiles offshore, zero textiles to landfill and diverts zero plastic microfibres back into recycled yarn that just keeps shedding plastic microfibres.
See individual services that we offer according to your waste.
The full circular solutions offer textile diversion solutions based on both garment/product type and fibre type. Our various circular streams and Circular Market offer clients an opportunity to divert and/or purchase circular products.
Circular streams are tailored to suit:
As a start-up, we are working with councils and businesses to put the service into the community as quickly as possible.
At last official count, Australia recycles 88,000 tonnes of clothing per year, however a staggering 800,000 tonnes of textile waste goes to landfill.

WHAT WE DO DO.
and through the Circular Market we
RECYCLESMART collect a long list of items including e-waste, soft plastics plus both "good" and unwearable "waste" clothing and homewares. Currently based in Sydney, the Circular Centre may be able to tap in to existing sytems operating in your area. Fill in the Assessment so we can learn more about your requirements.
Councils can advertise their service to be Zero Textile Waste and offer it to residents so they stop throwing into their garbage bin.
RecycleSmart and the Circular Centre work with councils to ensure that:
1. "good" clothing is donated to Vinnies
2. clean unwearable clothing and homewares are given to us to be saved from landfill
3. unwanted denim - the good, bad and ugly denim is repaired, upcycled and re-designed through our collaboration with TAFE NSW.
CLOTHING BIN SERVICE
Councils and participating community networks can install two standard 120kg Clothing Bins per location to have the contents collected, sorted, dismantled & repurposed.
Clothing bins are the most successful ways to divert clothing from landfill.
GREEN BIN - UNWEARABLES
Use the bin to promote your circular initiative and collect clean unwearable clothing, bras and homewares (no feathers, shoes or accessries).
BLUE BIN CIRCULAR DENIM
We collect all denim - the good, bad and ugly denim to be redesigned and repurposed with fashion students plus repurposed through the CTWS waste streams.
YELLOW BIN -
Customers can drop off their 100% "good" clothing that will be donated to various charities so they can continue to do excellent work caring for the community.
COLLECTION OR DROP-OFF for corporate clients, fashion and garment producers for Deadstock and/or a Take-Back Service plus commercial Industrial textile waste
