About Roberts Recycling Ltd

Welcome to Roberts Recycling Ltd.

Established in 2009 we have positioned ourselves as one of the UK’s leading sustainable textile recyclers and processors.

Diverting waste clothing and textiles from landfill is our core mission.

We provide this much needed clothes recycling service for many fashion giants, renowned global brands, retailers, local councils, Britian’s leading charities and school fundraisers. We pride ourselves on meeting the specific unique, sustainable recycling needs for each partner. Our priority lies in extending the useful life of garments by sending them for reuse. We offer a range of disposal options, including secure destruction, de-labelling, export to specified territories, fiber sorting for onward fiber-to-fiber recycling, and the production of industrial wiping cloths and other products.

What began as a passion to save the planet, an idea almost ahead of its time 15 years ago, has grown into an internationally recognised operation exporting textiles to over thirty countries across three continents. Our weekly processing volume stands at nearly 200 tons of textiles, equating to over half a million items. Our commitment to excellence and sustainable practices has earned us the prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in 2019 and 2022. In 2023, we were ranked amongst Britain’s top 100 fastest-growing companies in the Sunday Times Hundred list.

Sustainability lies at the heart of our operations at our Knowsley Head Office. On-site beehives produce honey for local charities and biodiverse well-being spaces provide our staff with an enjoyable environment. Recently installed solar panels charge our electric vans and forklifts. We believe in positively impacting the environment while striving for business success .

Our innovative and progressive approach sets us apart and we are regarded as “the future of the industry” by our peers. Constantly challenging industry norms, we actively lobby politicians to address the textile waste crisis and maintain memberships in relevant trade associations. We ensure ethical trading through due diligence checks. Currently we collaborate with universities and students interested in sustainability in the fashion industry.

Finally, by substantial investments in research and development we are intent on driving innovation and positive change for the fashion and clothing industry. We welcome new ideas and partners.

When the opportunity to partner arises, we extend an open invitation to come and witness firsthand our dedication to sustainability and experience the future of the textile recycling industry.
