About Us


The European Recycling Company assists people all over the UK to provide a new lease of life to their
unwanted shoes and clothes.

What a Waste!
Every day, here in the UK, around 2,000 tonnes of clothing & shoes are sent to landfill. This would bury 720 football pitches in 6 feet (1.83m) of waste every year, which is one football pitch every 12 hours.

A Better Way
ERC have operated with many local authorities, waste companies and clothing retailers for over 20 years enabling communities to recycle unwanted clothing, reduce waste in the home and help eliminate landfill.


Our mission is to achieve 100% recycled used textiles, clothing and shoes. This will help to preserve vital natural resources and establish closed loop production.
