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 a narrow sorting, the finest clothes are offered, for free, to vulnerable group of people in Greece.
Further, clothing is available for transportation to countries in urgent need, such as natural disasters, war and so on.
The largest percentage is exported for processing. Part of the material, unsuitable for reusable clothes, is recycled to produce cleaning cloths, tow, insulators, and other material.

 



Other Ways to Collect


 Clothes are gathered and collected in small warehouses, or in other collection points, available by the local authorities, schools, social grocery stores, churches, charities, and non-profit organizations. In any case, RECYCOM® responds directly to the regular garment collection, when a greatvolume is collected.
