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!

Please Note:
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.

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.
