Gebetex Tri Normandie: an approved sorting center
Located in Vernon, in the Eure, Gebetex Tri Normandie is a company specializing in sorting textiles and approved by the eco-organization ECO TLC.
With more than 20 years of experience in the field, we have acquired unparalleled expertise in the sorting, recycling and upgrading of used clothing. We work closely with local authorities and associations (such as the French Red Cross or the Secours Poupulaire Français for example) to help them organize effective clothing collection campaigns, throughout France, via the parent company Gebetex Collecte .
It is partly thanks to the purchases of stocks of textiles collected in the various points, via collection bins or containers, by Gebetex Collecte, that Gebetex Tri has a substantial and constant quantity of TLC (textiles, linens, shoes) .
Quality sorting for collected second-hand products
Once redeemed, the tons of clothes collected are sorted. The sorting of textiles is done by hand, by our qualified team of 20 people. Hired on a permanent contract, our team meticulously sorts more than 20 tons of second-hand clothing daily.
The process involves several steps, including:
- A first sorting to separate the collected textiles into categories: clothing (t-shirts, pants, dresses…), household linen (sheets, curtains…), leather goods (handbags, belts…), shoes (sneakers, boots…), etc.
- A second sorting, within each category, to classify the textiles according to their quality.
This method allows us to provide our customers with products of impeccable quality in order to be resold in second-hand shops, online thrift stores, markets, etc.
Second-hand clothes that are not of good enough quality to be resold (stained pants, holey sweater, damaged linens, etc.) will get a second life. Sent to the recycling sector, they will be transformed into wiping rags or fuel for industry, or even raw materials. Be aware that energy-efficient second-hand clothes represent only 5 percent of recycled products.
