About Recycling Rewards

Did you know 85% of all textiles end up in a landfill despite 95% being fully recyclable? Currently, there are approximately 500 million pounds of textile sitting in Canadian landfills today. Textile puts tremendous strain on our environment. Decomposing clothing and other household materials in the landfill releases methane, a harmful greenhouse gas and a significant contributor to global warming. There are dyes and chemicals in fabric and other components of clothing and shoes that can leach into the soil, contaminating both surface and groundwater.

Recycling Rewards is a for-profit duly licensed Canadian recycling company operating in the Provinces of Ontario and British Columbia. We have been around for 12 years setting the standard in recycling industry for the collection and recycling of clothing, toys, books, small appliances and other unwanted items. We are proud member of Recycling Council Of Ontario promoting a greener earth by providing quick and easy solution to textile recycling while supporting charities. We believe “Recycle + Reuse= Rewards”.

We have well established virtual call center, truck and fleet services to provide excellent Pick-up and Donation Bin Programs. We built, placed & maintain over 700 textile recycling bins across Ontario & BC and we have 19 trucks to provide best Residential Curbside Textile Collection & Recycling programs.
