Clothing Recycling for MA & CT
According to the Waste composition study published by MassDEP, “more than 230,000 tons of usable textiles – including clothing, footwear, towels, bedding and other fabric-based products – were sent to landfills and incinerators in Massachusetts in 2010.”
Bay State Textile exports half of its clothing donations and collections to developing countries. There is a healthy demand for used clothing and shoes from the United States all over the world. These textiles are primarily reused as clothing and shoes, providing thousands of jobs for small entrepreneurs, their families, and employees.
Our management team has over 40 years of combined experience exporting reclaimed clothing donations to over 15 countries worldwide. From Japan, Europe, Africa, South, to Central America, we understand the markets that import secondhand clothing from the United States.

Used clothing and shoes are a vital commodity for economies all over the world in terms of economic development and an inexpensive alternative from new clothing for many people that live off of $1 per day.
