Chilcorn has been in operation from 2010.
In that time we have collected over 4000 tonnes of used clothing from the South West of England and South Wales all of which has been potentially diverted from landfill.
The majority of the clothes are sold abroad to countries including Ukraine, Hungary, Poland and Romania where they are sorted and sold as clothing for re-use, however, occasionally we do sell to sorters in the UK who then send it on the African countries.
Any clothes we collect or you bring to us are weighed and baled into large sacks called bottanies. These are then loaded into articulated lorries and taken abroad.
