By using RTS Textile Recyclers, you are able to help recycle textiles and clothing that otherwise would have been diverted to landfill. It’s estimated that approximately 1.7 million tonnes of clothing waste is produced in the UK every year. Out of this tonnage around 1.2 million tonne is sent unnecessarily to landfill. If we can divert some of this tonnage away from landfill we will directly help the environment and help provide good quality clothing to some of the poorest developing countries in the world.
