How clothes are gathered
⇒ RECYCOM places particularly elegant recycling bins (red color) in public places such as schools, municipalities and community councils, etc. Individuals or organizations that can offer hospitality in similar places and/or suggest suitable venues can contact us.
⇒ The garments are collected regularly by RECYCOM personnel and stored in our warehouses for the purpose of handling and shipping abroad.
What do we do with the clothes
⇒ After small sorting, the best clothes are offered free to indigent people in Greece.
⇒ Further, clothing is available for shipment to countries where there is an urgent need, such as natural disasters, war and so on.
⇒ The largest percentage is exported for re-use. Part of the material, unsuitable for reusable clothes, is recycled to produce cleaning cloths, towels, insulators, and other material.
Other Ways to Collect
⇒ Clothes are gathered and collected in small warehouses, or in other gathering places with local authorities, schools, social grocery stores, churches, charities, and non-profit organizations. In all cases, RECYCOM responds directly to the regular garment collection when a good volume is collected.
