We are passionate about providing quality workwear that lasts, and we like to lead by example when it comes to being environmentally conscious.


Our innovative Uniform Recycling service aims to reduce the amount of old uniforms being sent to landfill which helps us and our valued customers ensure that old, obsolete garments can be transformed into something new when they reach the end of their life.


According to the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) £140 million worth, approximately 350,000 tonnes of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year. Many uniforms are made of plastic based textiles such as polyester which are damaging to the environment as the fibres do not disintegrate.


If you’ve purchased your uniforms and workwear from us, you can arrange with us for them to be returned so that they can be shredded, and instead of going to landfill, they are then recycled to create Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) for industrial businesses or used for mattress fillings, car roof insulation and panel linings.



At Grahame Gardner, we can offer various solutions to suit your requirements depending on the volume and frequency of the uniforms being recycled. These include direct return to our warehouse, ad hoc collections and regular monthly collections for trade account customers.


For organisations that have old uniforms purchased from us who would like to make use of the recycling service, we’d love to hear from you. Just contact [email protected] or call 0116 255 6326 for help on the next steps.
