The collection and valorisation of the textile fraction of urban waste has various positive effects. It is good for the environment because it prolongs the life of products and materials, reduces the consumption of raw materials and energy needed to produce new ones and also reduces the amount of waste that arrives in landfills and must be disposed of.
The used clothes that we throw in street bins are mostly bought by Italian companies for the subsequent selection and start for reuse and recycling. The remainder, on the other hand, is purchased by companies located in North Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia, which select them and send them for reuse and recycling to meet the demand of the markets of those geographical areas.
Our company offers the possibility of collecting used clothing and accessories in special bins, located within the municipality that gives us the assignment, supplying them as raw material to third-party companies who will then take care of their relocation.
