Clothing & Textile Recycling
uniform & clothing destruction
As with product destruction, the Shred-X uniform & clothing shredding solution is designed to protect your brand, and keep proprietary company material out of public circulation. Obsolete uniforms and branded clothing should be kept out of the general waste stream to prevent unauthorised use of these materials bearing your company brand and associated reputation.
Furthermore, if your company has undergone a rebrand, outdated uniforms can dilute expensive marketing strategies. Shred-X guarantees the complete destruction of clothing with our industrial-grade shredders, which are designed to destroy large quantities of material. Shred-X regularly destroy:
- Police & emergency service uniforms
- Security firm uniforms
- Corporate logo uniforms
- Designer branded clothing
- Counterfeit fashion items
Many clothing distributors and designers throughout Australia rely on Shred-X to destroy counterfeit products, unapproved samples and unwanted clothing, for the guaranteed security and convenience of our solution. Federal Police-cleared and security vetted personnel will collect and transport the materials requiring destruction in an alarmed and GPS-tracked vehicle to the nearest Shred-X facility. Our facilities are locked, alarmed and under 24-hour HD CCTV surveillance. Once the materials are securely shredded, a Certificate of Destruction is provided as confirmation of the complete chain of custody which has been maintained. Shred-X also offers witnessed destruction should this be required.
We can customise this service to suit your needs, providing you with tailored shredding solutions. To learn more about our clothing and uniform shredding service, please contact Shred-X today.
OUR FOCUS ON LANDFILL DIVERSION FOR TEXTILES
Australia currently sends over 500,000 tonnes of fabric & textiles to landfill per annum.
Born from the paper recovery industry, Shred-X has a lifelong commitment to minimising environmental impact, actively working towards building resilient infrastructure and promoting sustainable industrialisation. As such Shred-X continues to develop collaborative partnerships to foster innovation in textile waste recycling, with the objective of landfill diversion whenever and wherever possible.
When it comes to textiles, enormous amounts of unwanted items end up in landfill every year. To avoid this outcome, choose a Shred-X textile solution to ensure the secure destruction of branded items, with the added benefit of giving shredded textiles a second life. Not only will your business reduce waste, it will also help prevent the use of unnecessary new materials in the manufacturing process.

Uniform & Textile destruction FAQs
WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH BRANDED CORPORATE UNIFORMS?
Secure Uniform disposal is essential for any business that has changed the design of their logo, had employees leave or where new uniforms have been issued, as it prevents misrepresentation or defamation to the service the uniform represents. It also stops criminals from using the uniforms for identity theft purposes.
Uniform destruction should be a top priority when considering brand protection. With the highest accreditations and strictest textile destruction policies and procedures, Shred-X can destroy old uniforms securely.
What kind of fabrics can Shred-X destroy?
Shred-X can destroy a wide range of textiles, including uniforms, linen, and synthetic fibres and more. If you have other textiles to those just described and you’re not sure if they’re suitable for our destruction service, our friendly team is available to advise you on the best course of action. We can complete a privacy assessment tailored to your business needs, so you know exactly what steps to take to ensure complete brand protection.
What other products can Shred-X destroy?
In addition to textile items, our facilities are equipped to securely destroy a range of products. From electronic devices and sensitive documents, to recalled, contraband and counterfeit products, we guarantee complete confidence in the secure destruction of all items.
Regardless of the product or service you provide, protecting the exclusivity and reputation of your brand is crucial.
Why Uniform Destruction is important?
Anyone who holds a branded uniform or any piece of wearable clothing has the power to represent your brand in the public eye. Back in 2017, Toll lost a major client as a result of an ex-employee falsely representing the values of their brand in the media. This individual was recorded delivering racist statements at an ex-parliament member, while wearing his former employer’s uniform.
As significant as it was for Toll, the implications of not destroying unneeded uniforms can be far worse than losing a single client. A negative representation of your brand could cost your business a significant amount of revenue – enough to halt your business’s operations.
To ensure your business isn’t put at risk of being falsely represented, defamed, or otherwise tarnished in the public eye, it’s essential you destroy all old clothing and products no longer needed. For the most secure destruction possible, book Shred-X for an onsite destruction service.
How does the product and textile destruction process work?
The process we use to destroy clothing and textiles is 100% secure. We use GPS-tracked vehicles to transport items from your home or business to your nearest Shred-X facility. Your items will remain in a locked container until they’re ready for processing. Once they’ve been shredded, you’ll be provided with a Certificate of Destruction.
