Clothing Drop-Off Locations
Here's every location where you can drop-off your textiles!
In 2022, we launched our new on-site solution to bring convenient recycling to our partners’ workplaces and offices, giving new life to staff uniforms, fabric off-cuts, and faulty products. Using this new program, brands have decided to step up and offer this recycling solution to their customers so that they can recycle a few items in-store! With the support of UPPAREL, these businesses are making a real, measurable, positive impact. By recycling items through these certified UPPAREL bins, you’re ensuring your items will avoid landfill and be given a new life, all while supporting a circular fashion economy.
No drop-off locations near you? Don’t worry!
You can book a pick-up through our Australia-wide clothing collection service HERE!
These locations are not designed for large drop-offs. If the bin is full, we kindly ask that you do not dump your items. To recycle more, you can book a collection here.
This fellow Certified B Corp has stepped up to launch the largest drop-off network to date with 24 in-store textile recycling bins across Melbourne! UPPAREL is supporting Kathmandu to provide customers with a sustainable solution to keep their pre-loved gear out of landfill. Simply head into any participating store and drop-off your Kathmandu products in bins provided.
As a brand, icebreaker is focused on removing unnecessary plastic from apparel at the outset, but know it’s important to recognise existing product lifecycles and what happens at the end of their life. By partnering with UPPAREL, icebreaker is building on their move to natural, enabling a conscious solution for clothing at the end of its life, and are offering consumers to try natural. Drop any preloved, clean clothing to the collection bin in any icebreaker touch lab store in Australia and New Zealand, and receive a $10* store credit.
- Any clean, used clothing except underwear and socks.
Universal Store was one of our first brand partners to offer our in-store textile recycling solution to their customers. The program is currently being trialled in five stores across the Greater Melbourne Region, with hopes of expanding to other Universal Stores across Australia. Simply head into any of the listed store locations and look for the black co-branded recycling bin. Universal Store locations can only accept the following select textile items.
Over the past couple of years, DECJUBA has partnered with UPPAREL to provide online denim recycling satchels, as well as access to denim drop-off points at all of their retail stores across Australia and New Zealand!

Simply visit any DECJUBA store and drop off your denim over the counter for recycling! It can be any brand, condition, or wash and we’ll give it a new life.
The Totally Workwear team have been on a sustainability journey to minimise their environmental impact and make a positive difference.

Simply head into any of the listed store locations and look for the black co-branded recycling bin.
UPPAREL has been supporting Macpac with our textile recycling since the beginning, utilising our solutions to give new life to products that can’t be recovered through their own in-house repair program.

From the conception of their brand, “doing the right thing” has been important to their team and customers. AS Colour believes it is the responsibility of every individual to be a good citizen, and while being a small player in a global market can at times be daunting, they believe their impact reduction on the environment can be just as significant as larger operations and that we can all make a difference.
