What Happens To Your Textiles

The textiles that you recycle through Rag Bag are sorted and graded at one of our four textile recycling facilities by Textile Recycling International Ltd.

Over 1200 trained people are employed to sort and grade over 2500 tonnes of material every week prior to export around the world.


Collect your unwanted clothing at home and put them into a Rag Bag clothing bank.


Our drivers will service the clothing bank and bring the bags back to our processing factory.


At the factory, our team of experienced workers sort and grade all the material into various product types. The material is baled and sent for shipment.


Low grade textiles are made into industrial wiping cloths, carpets, underlay and mattress linings.


Good quality clothing is transported to Africa and other developing nations where your old clothes are re-used.
