Destruction & Recycling

Granite Workwear is committed to ensuring the protection of your brand when your workwear & PPE reaches its end of life and the environment.

That’s why we’ve launched our very own textile destruction and recycling service which is fully auditable and we are ISO14001 certified.

We Can Recycle All of the Workwear That We Supply to You at the End of its Life.

With our fully traceable and auditable process, we ensure that your old uniforms, workwear & PPE (excluding disposable PPE) doesn’t end up in the wrong hands.

Environmentally Conscious

We recycle all of our waste and ensure nothing goes to landfill.
In The UK we discard approximately 1 million tonnes of clothing every year and 10,000 items of clothing are sent to landfill every 5 minutes! Approximately 30% of all clothing.
We destroy all clothing by recycling into new fibres for a variety of products including new fabrics.
This includes boots and belts. Plastics from safety glasses and helmets are re-chipped for re-use in the plastic industry.
Metals from studs, buttons, zips and toe caps and melted down for re-use.
The only product that we cannot recycle is the high visibility tape – this goes to incineration.

It’s Free To Do

We pay for it all to be recycled. All you need to do is send it back to us and we’ll take care of the rest.


Granite Workwear takes all of our products and customers very seriously when it comes to disposing of old workwear and uniforms.
We understand the importance of destroying your old textiles so they don’t end up in the wrong hands where people can use the uniforms to gain unapproved access.
This is why we go to great lengths to protect your brand by ensuring the full destruction and recycling of your old workwear.
So you can rest assured that your branded old uniforms and workwear has been destroyed by a trusted and reputable seller of workwear.

Granite Workwear will consult with you to discuss your needs to take the relevant actions when it comes to your old workwear.
