Are there clothes in your wardrobe that you just don’t wear (any more)? Then it might be time to get them fixed so you can enjoy it again. If that doesn’t make you fall in love with them again then it’s time to say goodbye. How do you do that in Amsterdam?

1. Give them away or sell them in a thrift shop

If your clothes still look great and have a second breath of life in them then give them away, swap them at The Swapshop or donate them to your local thrift shop, such as De Lokatie noord 1, noord 2 or oost and Weggeefwinkel New Life West.

Did you know that you can also sell your clothes in these great shops in Amsterdam? Reverse, De Ruilhoek, Zora, De Woensdagwinkel and Garment. You can sell and buy second hand children's clothes at these shops: Otis en de wolf, JunJun, Ziggy + Lucy, ROOKIE de recyclekid and Old West.

2. Return to an in-house collection point

In the centre of Amsterdam you can hand in your textiles at Denim City, The Swapshop, Fashion for Good and Op Nummer 9.

Looking to give a jumper, jeans or denim jacket a new life? Bring them in to Rambler Studios and who knows, they might be upcycled into a cool jacket or another item of street style clothing!

NUTT Amsterdam will also gladly give your clothes a second life! NUTT doesn't see old clothes as waste but as valuable raw material to be reused with love in their Arty Fashion NUTT-Blazers, for example. Head to their website to find out how to donate your clothes to them.

3. Leave them in a textile bin

You can also deposit your clothes in a bin for textiles which you will be able to recognise as official containers of the municipality by their purple sticker. Ensure your textiles are clear and dry then put them into a sealed plastic bag, and take the bag to your closest bin. The textile bins are available 24/7.
