The topic of recycling is an important one across many industries as we fight to slow global warming and to preserve valuable resources. One way the fashion industry is able to contribute to these efforts is with shredding.

There has been much speculation around wasteful practices in the clothing industry, but with shredding it is possible to reduce concerns over where clothing ends up when it’s no longer used – all while also protecting businesses and the public from harm.

Once these items are disassembled and shredded, the resulting waste is collected for recycling in a safe and secure manner.

Similar to the document destruction process we typically cover on the blog, this shredding is done using giant machines that take the materials and render it unrecognizable. Much of the shredded matter can then be recycled and processed for use in other formats.

Clothing & Accessory Shredding Items Include:

  • Undergarments
  • Uniforms
  • Pants
  • Shirts
  • Coats
  • Sneakers
  • Coats
  • Purses
  • Sunglasses

Safe and total destruction is the only way to protect privacy, deter fraudsters and maintain a brand’s reputation.

Clothes that are still in good shape and that can be used by someone else should be donated. However, when there are uniforms from businesses, police or other officials that that are no longer being used, they must be disposed of securely. Fraudsters impersonating police or other officials is a public safety hazard. This step cannot be taken lightly.

For fashion brands, there’s also the need to also destroy imperfect productions, counterfeit items and even conceal trade secrets. Shredding ensure the items are removed from the consumer pipeline and responsibly handled without getting into the wrong hands.
