The Circular Textile Waste Service (CTWS) is the next step beyond recycling. Australia's first and only service to send zero textiles overseas, zero textiles to landfill and divert zero plastic microfibres back into recycled fabrics that just keeps shedding plastic.
Our circular streams can be tailored to suit
As a start-up, currently we offer our service through Mosman City Council and Virgin Airlines and are working with councils and businesses to put the service into the community as quickly as possible.
THE CIRCULAR CENTRE has partnered with some of Australia's key circular design and carbon sequestering innovators to foster circular industry employment opportunities, particularly for Australian Disability Enterprises.
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. The CTWS works to divert this valuable resource to reuse, redesign, recycle and repurpose using circular design streams located in Australia.

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.
Learn more the various streams.
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
We use the bin to promote your circular initiative and collect clean unwearable clothing, bras and homewares (no feathers, shoes or accessries).

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.
