Clothing Recycling

Australians produce around 50 million tonnes of waste every year - and most of us don’t think about where the waste ends up, which is usually landfill.

That’s where Red Nose Clothes Recycling comes in. Red Nose accepts donated clothes, shoes and accessories and helps to recycle them.

Red Nose Clothes Recycling is a great way to care for the environment all the while helping to save little lives.
