Every year million tons of textile waste is being sent to landfills. It is estimated that in Turkey approximately half of the disposed textile waste is consisted of post-consumer textile waste. Although the amount of post-consumer textile waste is as high as pre-consumer textile waste, recovering opportunities for post-consumer textile waste is substantially disregarded. The purpose of this study is to make the preliminary work to investigate potential of post-consumer textile waste and recycling/reusing possibilities in Turkey by monitoring UK and US examples. This study may contribute to developing countries as many of them are lacking of an attempt to collect, recycle or reuse post-consumer textile waste.
