Organize a Clothing Drive

Encourage the recovery and reuse of textiles by organizing a clothing recovery campaign with those around you or within your company.

The collection of used clothing and its transportation to the sorting centre is carried out free-of-charge by Certex. We give you our commitment to calculate the statistical data and give it to the organizer for promotional and publicity purposes.

Give Your Clothes a New Life

At Certex, each sack of gathered clothing is sorted and represents employment created in Quebec. Thanks to clothing donations, Certex is able to employ 140 people, of whom 75% have physical or mental handicaps. Furthermore, Certex has been able to set up several help programs to facilitate the integration of these employees in the community.

In our collection boxes we accept clothing, used shoes, accessories such as belts, jewelry, handbags, all items in cotton, toys, etc.

By giving your clothing to Certex, you:

  • Contribute significantly to protecting the environment;
  • Participate in creating employment for people with handicaps;
  • Provide an extensive choice of primary material and fashion accessories to second-hand stores and eco-designers from here; and
  • Provide small and large Quebec companies with wipes made of 100% recycled material.
