Welcome to JDM Sorting, LLC

Saving the Environment, One Hanger at a Time


Helping the Retail Clothing Industry Go Green

To care for nature, JDM Sorting, LLC in Edison, NJ helps retail clothing companies and garment vendors recycle and reuse plastic hangers. Our experienced team has more than 18 years of experience in the hanger industry. Enabling job creation and skill training, we operate several facilities across the country and employ more than 500 US citizens.

What We Do

Every year, our team reuses and recycles more than 350 million plastic hangers. We keep them out of landfills where they can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. Our company makes efforts to have zero waste, finding new uses to old hangers to decrease the amount of trash produced.

Working with almost every major garment retailer, we strive to make our clients confident about going green while profiting from the reuse of plastic hangers. Our team has created an environmentally friendly and economically efficient process to help our retail partners. We implement an effective process to:

  • Reduce the Production of New Hangers
  • Reuse Hangers Already Flowing Through the System
  • Recycle Hangers That Cannot Be Reused

Benefits of Reusing Hangers

New clothing is hung on hangers before they are delivered to retail stores. Because of this volume, many retailers give away the hangers to customers. The buyers may use the hangers in their closets at home, but many people throw them away.

Retailers who work with us have decided to recycle hangers and reduce waste. The process starts when customer service representatives sell clothing and take the display hangers to collect them. Through a green activity called reverse logistics, the hangers are loaded to the empty trucks that deliver new clothing. By returning the hangers to the retailers’ distribution centers, we use resources wisely.

We work with regional carriers near their sorting facilities to have less impact on the carbon footprint. Our team picks up the hangers and transports them to one of our sorting facilities. We carefully check them for quality, then sort and repackage them.

At a significant discount, we sell the recycled and repackaged hangers back to garment vendors. Our company separates each truck to inform retailers of the exact amount of hangers and poundage of material they reuse and recycle each year.


Recycling Broken Hangers

Our company recycles 100% of all hangers. We reuse more than 80% and sell the rest as scrap. Our team has partnered with manufacturers to use our post-consumer plastic to reproduce new products. We reuse and reduce all the plastics we receive to avoid having them end up in a landfill.

Our company works to save nature and have sustainable resources. We have five locations throughout the United States helping us achieve our goal:

  • Edison, NJ
  • Richmond, VA
