About King Cotton

Each year, we collect over 5,000 tonnes of clothing and accessories across Australia with up to 95% being reused or recycled both locally and by developing countries. Since 1980, this has amounted to around 200,000 tonnes of clothing and textiles that have been diverted from landfill.

We pride ourselves on supporting local communities, charities and the environment. Over the past 10 years, we have been able to provide partnering councils with over $50,000 and with our support of major charities like, "Make A Wish“, ”Enough is Enough“, Youth off the Streets" and the “The Youth Safe Foundation" we have donated over $1.5 million to charity. In addition to this, we maintain a partnership with UNSW that proudly supports their textile recycling study and includes donations over $50,000 each year towards sustainable materials, research, and development.

We currently support approximately 50 jobs for low-skilled or rehabilitated people returning

to work promoting a system of equal opportunity for all.

Our Vision

At King Cotton, we want to provide our Australian communities with a cost-effective, socially aware and environmentally responsible solution to clothing and household goods disposal. We aim to provide mutually beneficial collection programs to local councils and shopping centres aiming to reduce landfill, minimise illegal dumping and improve local employment to low-skilled workers.


Our clothing deposit bins raise awareness about the benefits of recycling including, environmental, community and social benefits.


We will advise and guide councils to organise programs that will effectively manage resource disposal and recovery in their area.


We will manage clothing bin sites in your area, FREE of charge. We will also pay annual leasing fees to your council or shopping centre.

At King Cotton we like to give back to our community and partners. Over the past 10 years, we have proudly donated in excess of $1.5 million to our Charity partners to support their hard work.
