Baling Credential Clothing

We have a short video to show the process of baling credential clothing.

What is credential clothing?

This type of used clothing is left in the exact condition and in the original bags that the donator gave the items to the charity or commercial recycling company.

Used clothing donations are placed in drop boxes (bins) of thrift stores and community centers in the wealthier neighborhoods of the cities. The boxes are emptied a minimum of once a week, sometimes more if needed. The driver ensures that all of the clothes are packed in plastic bags and that no trash or wet clothing are in the bags.

All collection facilities have experience packing 40ft high cube and standard ocean containers, 48ft trucks, 53ft dry Vans, and reefers.

They can press original used clothing donation bags into 800-1000 lb bales, leaving the clothing in the original donation bags and packing them loose in a truck – or they can pack the original donation bags into a packaging system called a Cap Sack.
