ReCircled opens new facility to manage fashion waste

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-04-23 08:03:56 – USA

ReCircled, an organization dedicated to the ReUse and ReCycling of the 100 billion garments and 25 billion shoes manufactured per year, is proud to announce the opening of their new facility in Sidney, Nebraska. ReCircled has signed a lease for the WWII district buildings that were formerly home to Cabela's - World's Foremost Outfitters' fulfillment center.

This facility would serve as a hub for the creativity needed to develop the United States' first garment-to-garment recycling scheme. Furthermore, ReCircled is collaborating with leading scientists and engineers to design and create the first system capable of disassembling all clothes, shoes, and accessories on a large scale. The first operating infrastructure will be in service in early 2022, using robotics, optical scanning, and laser cutters.

ReCircled Sidney is bringing reuse to use in all areas of its operations. These buildings, which total about 750,000 square feet and were constructed as an ammunition depot during WWII, were later repurposed as a Distribution Center by Cabela's. This plant is perfect for reducing the carbon footprint for the movement of the clothing, shoes, and accessories that will need to be manufactured in the coming years since it is situated at the junction of a North/South and East/West rail line, and it is strategically in the middle of the United States.

CEO of ReCircled, Scott Kuhlman said this is the culmination of years of work to develop the mechanism that will assist brands and suppliers in developing a Circular Business Model and closing the loop. Since the closing of Cabela's Headquarters, it would also be good to bring employment to the local economy. He adds that they are optimistic that this is a long-term proposition for business and the town of Sidney, thanks to ReCircled's upcycling and recycling efforts and the dedication of their brand partners.

ReCircled is a turnkey approach for fashion brands to join the Circular Economy, with the belief that innovation and accountability can bring fashion back from the present global economic environment.
