What does Simple Recycling do with what they collect?
Q: What happens to the collected clothing?
A: All of the materials are graded and sorted locally and/or regionally based on quality and condition. The top quality materials will be resold to local thrift outlets, mid grade is exported to international markets and “unusable” items are processed for raw materials.
