Our unique recycling plant, Wastesaver, maximises revenue from textiles that cannot be resold in our shops, and minimises the amount of textiles sent to landfill.
The facility sorts 80 tonnes of clothing a week. Every item can be used to make money for our poverty-busting work, including being sold on the Oxfam online shop, in our Oxfam Festival Shops, or selling them onto fashion designers who restyle garments and reuse fabrics.
Damaged or low grade items can be sold to recycling traders so they can, for instance, be turned into car soundproofing or mattress stuffing.
