Old Shoe, New Trick:

Textile Recovery, Reuse & Recycling

March 21, 2014

At a time when some global recycling markets are in flux, the market for textiles is strong, growing and adapting to new reuse opportunities. Nearly 75 recycling and waste prevention industry professionals joined WSRA at this WRED event for a behind-the-scenes look at how unwanted textiles move from collection sites to new homes and new products in neighborhoods around the world. Participants heard from topic experts from various facets of the textile recovery, reuse, retail and recycling marketplace and toured Seattle Goodwill’s new LEED Gold Certified Job Training & Education Center and main processing center, Buffalo Export LLC and Buffalo Industries.
