Did you know that 17 million tons of textiles go to our landfills every year – when around 95% of all textiles are reusable or recyclable (EPA)? The clothing and textile industry is the second largest polluter in the world, right behind oil (source: EPA). That’s why textile recycling is so crucial.
At CheckSammy, we are passionate about helping our customers do their part by managing their waste responsibly. We help our commercial clients recycle or donate clothing, tablecloths, bedsheets, apparel, and all other textiles, so they can keep pace with a clear conscience. Together, we can drastically reduce the volume of textiles sent to landfills.

TEXTILE RECYCLING FAQs
Have questions about textile recycling? We can help. Here are some common FAQs and answers to help you dispose of your textiles responsibly.

If your textiles have life left in them, donating unwanted clothing is the most sustainable solution. With CheckSammy, we do all the hard work for you to find the right resaler that will take your items and give them a second life – and won’t send them to the landfill if they don’t sell.
