Our contribution to Circular Fashion

Sourcing of used clothing through bank collections

Ecotex Germany comprehensively supports and carries out its own collections in western Germany. We plan logistics in terms of efficiency by adjusting the frequency of trips and selecting the right means of transport. We order new containers, set them up, take care of their technical condition, and keep the collection spots clean. Within a short amount of time, we resolve any occurring issues.

Sale of unsorted clothing and sorted shoes

In Germany, we collect unsorted used clothing, which constitutes a raw material for further stages of recycling. Clothing comes both from our own collections and from certified, long-term suppliers. Visible waste is separated and disposed of responsibly, thanks to which it does not end up in the goods intended for sale. In our German company, we offer sorted shoes.

Certified by TÜV-Rheinland

Ecotex Germany is inspected by TÜV Rheinland – the world's leading international provider of industrial inspection services – and certified annually against the criteria of the German Waste Management Ordinance (pursuant to § 56 and 57 KrWG).

We are a specialist resource management company for the collection, transport, storage, processing, recycling, trade and textile treatment (AVV 04 02 22, 15 01 09, 19 12 08, 20 01 11).

Our transport and forwarding services

Since 1991, our company Polstoff organises domestic and international transport and offers forwarding services. Close cooperation with companies belonging to the Ecotex Group guarantees the highest safety standard and punctuality of each transport.

Polstoff has a modern and diverse fleet that has the necessary EU permits required for road transport of goods, including used clothing and waste paper.
