If you have piles of old clothes in your home, you need to figure out how to get rid of them or what to do with them. At The Junk Tycoons, we’ve put together a guide that will help you get rid of old clothes you don’t wear anymore.
Let’s look at some of the effective ways to get rid of clothes you no longer wear.
Another easy way to keep old clothes out of the landfill is to sell them online. If the clothes are in wearable condition, you can trade them for cash on online sites like thredUP, eBay, Poshmark, Tradesy, Facebook Marketplace, The RealReal, and Kidclo (for baby clothes and kids’ clothes). For higher-end clothes that you no longer wear, you can sell them on sites like Hardly Ever Worn It, Rethread, or Vestiare. This option is easy and convenient because all you need to do is ship the clothes to the buyer, and you’ll receive your payout.
You can sell gently used clothes to local consignment shops and thrift stores and earn extra cash. Some consignment shops will pay you right on the spot, while others will send your payout once they sell the clothes. You should do your research to find local consignment shops that offer good prices for gently used clothes.
Gently used clothes that are in good condition can be donated to local charity shops. Simply perform a Google search to find local charity shops that accept gently used clothes or drop off the clothes at the Salvation Army, homeless shelters, immigrant support groups, or community outreach centers. Other organizations that accept used clothes in good condition include Goodwill, Planet Aid, Dress for Success, Vietnam Veterans of America, and the American Red Cross. Before you drop off your used clothes, it’s a good idea to verify what the organization needs. Most of them list this information on their websites.
Animal shelters use old garments, towels, blankets, and other fabrics to make bedding for the animals under their care. If you have gently used linens that you want to dispose of, you can drop them off at an animal shelter. Call the shelter first to find out what kind of items they accept.
Fabric made of natural fibers such as cotton, wool, silk, cashmere, bamboo, and hemp can be composted. The process of composting natural fabrics is simple. Cut up the fabrics into small squares and mix them with potting soil. Mix the fabric with soil, and then add your plants and water.
If your old clothes cannot be sold or donated, it can be a good idea to dispose of them. One of the most efficient ways to dispose of old clothes is to call a local junk removal service to pick them up and haul them away for disposal.
