Canada’s Textile Recycling Report

In 2020, with financial support from Environment & Climate Change Canada, we conducted Canada's first textile recycling feasibility study.

Our report, published in May 2021 estimates that about 500,000 tonnes of post-consumer clothing end up in Canada’s landfills – each year. Our research covered the volume, source and composition of textile waste, a technical review of automated sortation, chemical and mechanical recycling technologies, and a number of recommendations to the federal government to transition toward a new textiles economy.
