Re: Selling used clothes in bulk - price per kg

If you are willing to donate rather than sell:

You can deposit the clothes in a collection box, any amount that fits into the box accepted. I deposit mine (new, unworn) at the Coop colleciton boxes, as I've heard that with this collection less ends up being pulped for rags. I can't verify that, however. They do say that the clothing stays in Switzerland rather than being exported.

No idea about the coop ones - but in the African country I spend a lot of time in, they get bales of clothes from European collection services.

These get cleaned, folded and resold on the local market.

Quite a profitable business.
