Post-retail marketing, or collecting excess inventory from thrift operations, is a critical step in our recycling process.
Various charities and thrift stores rely on us to purchase leftover donations of secondhand clothing, shoes, belts, purses and toys to supplement revenue for their community based programs.
We count on them to supply us with secondhand clothing that we, in turn, export to whatever global market needs it most.
HOW IT WORKS
TRUCKLOADS PER WEEK
Excess thrift inventory is big business
Unlike others, we take whatever inventory the thrift operation has to sell in order to maintain good relations and longstanding partnerships.
We sort and grade based on condition
Once sorted, the used clothing is recycled in one of the following ways.
We export to developing countries
In these countries, the demand for secondhand clothing is high due to the lack of local clothing manufacturers or high priced new clothing.
BECOME WIPERS OR FIBER
Recovered textiles are cut into rags
These wiping rags or polishing cloths are then used in commercial and industrial settings. Remaining material is reprocessed into basic fiber content, which is then used to create furniture stuffing, upholstery, home insulation, automobile sound-proofing, carpet padding, building materials and various other products.
Environmental impact is top of mind
This material may be contaminated with mold or solvents and is disposed of properly and with the environmental impact in-mind.
