TEXTILTIGER is an innovative solution from REMONDIS Digital, a subsidiary of the globally active recycling company REMONDIS. It includes an online bookable pick-up service for old clothes from private households and companies.

TEXTILTIGER was created in Hamburg at the beginning of 2022 due to the need for alternative collection methods for old kelider. Due to a lack of collection quality in conventional container collection, almost all used clothing containers in Hamburg were dismantled and many old clothes ended up in residual waste. Thanks to TEXTILTIGER's easy-to-book service, around 750 tons of used clothing have been collected so far since the start of the project. The significant increase in the quality of old clothes compared to container collection is remarkable, as faulty throws or misuse can be ruled out as a result of collection directly at the front door. RE Textil, a subsidiary of REMONDIS, is responsible for sorting and marketing used clothing.

It is easy to book a pick-up appointment on the website. After entering the zip code, the person making the booking is asked to choose a pick-up date, which can be at least 24 hours in the future. In the following booking form, the most necessary data, such as email address or address, are entered. After submitting the booking, the person making the booking receives a booking confirmation. The old clothes will be picked up on the booked date (3 hour time window) by e-cargo bike or electrically powered vans. In this way, TextilTiger wants to increase the collection quality of old textiles and thus extend the life cycle of well-preserved garments and prevent improper disposal.

Route planning and data transfer to TEXTILTIGER drivers are carried out automatically.
