End-of-life textiles

Sort into end-of-life textiles

  • shirts, pants, skirts and jackets
  • towels, sheets, curtains and tablecloths

Textiles that are unusable but dry, clean and odorless are suitable for end-of-life textiles collection.

Pack end-of-life textiles in a plastic bag (maximum size approx. 30 liters) and seal it well.

Do not sort underwear, socks, pantyhose, bags, belts, shoes, carpets, pillows, blankets, cushions, soft toys and all dirty, wet, moldy and strongly smelling textiles in the end-of-life textiles. These are all mixed waste.

Durability is the key factor in ensuring more responsible clothing: from the environmental viewpoint, the most sustainable approach is to use clothes for as long as possible.

Intact and usable clothing and textiles should be taken to flea markets and recycling centres, collection bins or swap events.

Where can I take it?

Take end-of-life textiles to the waste station or Riepu collection, a maximum of two plastic bags at a time.

  • to the Nekala waste station
  • to the Nextiili store in Lielahti, Tampere
  • to the Orivesi waste station
  • Riepu collection (with Repe & Romu)

Take large quantities of textile waste not suitable for end-of-life textiles to waste stations and waste centers.

How are textiles recycled?

End-of-life textiles are mechanically processed into recycled fiber, which companies can use as raw material for their products.
