Textile Recycling International is the holding company for five of the UK’s leading textile recyclers: JMP Wilcox, Nathan’s Wastesavers. Cookstown Textile Recyclers, BIU Group and SWD Premier Clothing Exports.
The Group is the UK’s leading business in the reclamation, processing and export of used clothing and shoes.

Established in 1895, JMP Wilcox is a fourth generation family business and is the UK’s largest processor and exporter of fine quality used clothing to Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia.

Working closely with charities, local authorities and waste reclamation companies, Wilcox have challenged old ideas and practices and developed new systems in the fields of collection, sorting, marketing and distribution.

The “state of the art” manufacturing unit is ideally positioned in the West Midlands and processes over 50,000 tons of material per annum.

Bag It UP was formed in 2005, to focus on partnering with charities and provide them with long term, sustainable funding. Bag It Up has since expanded and provides textile recycling services to local authorities, waste management companies and charities. As a trusted partner, Bag It Up helps its customers meet sustainability, waste and financial targets with a transparent, efficient and ethical service.
