The collection methods of strategically located collection bins and a controlled coverage of street collections from residential homes provides Pacific Island Recyclers Pty. Ltd. with a diversity of high quality discarded goods for re-purposing in other markets.
Sorted Second Hand Clothing
Our clothing is sourced from high-income areas around Australia, including Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide in suburbs which provide stock of excellent quality.
While any rubbish is removed from the collections, the clothing itself is graded and sorted prior to export. The collected garments are sold by weight, in various mixes. These mixes include both 1st and 2nd grade clothing for men, women and children as well as a variety of linen, manchester, accessories and lingerie.
We pride ourselves on the fact that the customers we supplied on establishment in 1995 by the original trading entity Supreme Textiles Pty. Ltd. are still being supplied by Pacific Island Recyclers Pty. Ltd. today.
We export high quality recycled clothing from Australia to Asia, Africa, the Pacific, The Middle East and Europe.
Handbags & Shoes
There are vast quantities of excellent handbags and shoes that are regularly collected and sorted including high end fashion brands. Our customers regularly comment that it is almost like Christmas when they sort through the various styles and brands of handbags and shoes in such good condition.
Toys & Bric-a-Brac
Many of our clients find that including a mix of toys and Bric-a-Brac with their core clothing order provides them with the opportunity for value adding as so many of the toys are in such great condition and the Bric-a-Brac items include many functional household items and collectable curios.
