What Happens to Textiles That Can’t Be Recycled?

In today’s world, where concerns about the environment are growing, the textile industry faces scrutiny for its contribution to waste. We at Roberts Recycling, a company dedicated to textile recycling, are addressing this issue head-on. But what happens when textiles can’t be recycled?

We proudly take a practical approach to textiles that can’t be reused. These items, unfit for traditional recycling, are redirected to various outlets where they find new purposes. One common destination is industrial use. These textiles are transformed into industrial wipers, which are handy for cleaning in manufacturing and automotive settings.

Additionally, textiles unfit for re-wear can be shredded and repurposed as insulation or carpet underlay. This not only reduces waste but also lessens the need for new materials in construction projects. These fabrics also find use as stuffing in products like toys and furniture, extending their lifespan and reducing the need for new materials.

Moreover, we at Roberts Recycling are committed to reclaiming fibers from unrecyclable textiles. Through advanced processes, we extract fibers that can be used to make new textiles or blended with other materials for innovative products. This approach conserves resources and reduces the environmental impact of textile production.

At Roberts Recycling, the journey of a textile doesn’t end with recycling. Instead, it continues through various transformations, finding new life in unexpected places. By embracing sustainability and innovation, we are making a difference in the fight against textile waste, one fabric at a time.
