Macquarie University Textile Recycling

We would like to assist with reducing landfill by collecting and forwarding any Macquarie University related textile items that are no longer usable to a local textile recycling partner for processing.

To date, we have prevented 1,240.08kg of textile items from ending up in landfills with thanks to the contributions from the following major participating departments:

Campus Life
Group Marketing
Macquarie University Sport & Aquatic Centre
Student Engagement, Inclusion & Belonging
Employability & Graduate Success

To thank you for not throwing your Macquarie University textile items in the rubbish bin, we will give you a 20% discount on your next purchase at Macshop Online

  • We will take any textile items that are Macquarie University branded. This can include old uniforms that were issued by your department, table cloths adorned with the old brand, club and association apparel that is no longer in a usable condition, etc.
  • The health and safety of our team members are important, so items can only be accepted if they are in a clean condition
  • You can qualify for the discount once per calendar year

Please drop off any Macquarie University textile items you no longer use to one of our team members at Macshop during trade hours and we will then send you your discount code shortly thereafter.
