What clothes cannot be used?

TRA cannot take underwear, metallics, blockout curtains, textiles that have bodily stains or other contaminations.

Yes, we can take worn out clothes as they are processed and shredded. This is ideal for clothes that you cannot donate to charities but please note contaminated clothes are not accepted.
Again it is important that goods are not contaminated, we can process old bedding and pillows. If in doubt please share photos with us before booking.
If textiles are worn or slightly dirty, we can accept them. However we cannot accept moth or insect infested textiles, contaminated (including bodily liquids) and undergarments.

TRA does not handle textile waste but recycles unwanted textiles that are of a clean condition, regardless how worn. If in doubt please contact us before booking.

Currently there are several depots locally. Much processing is done locally however options are also available overseas depending on the type of materials being assessed for recycling. TRA does not add to other countries’ waste streams. Site visits are available in Sydney and Melbourne.
TRA proudly documents our supply chain. We also have case studies with many of our customers who have asked for circular solutions. Videos can be found on this site, showing a variety of processes in our supply chain.
Yes, by recycling you are keeping fibres out of landfill that can be repurposed instead of using virgin materials and resources. Textile engineering can be tough on the planet by recycling energy use and water is lessened.
Australians throw out an approximate 25kgs of textiles per year into landfill. This does not tend to breakdown easily, as even if it is a natural fibre, the soil found in landfill is of bad quality not allowing the ventilation for natural fibres to break down easily. By recycling you are supporting our environment, as you do with paper, cardboard and plastics at home.
