H&M, WalMart found slashing then trashing items

Not only have people found clothing in the trash by big stores, but the employees slashed the trashed items with a knife in order to make them unwearable by anyone. Read the article from the NYTimes. Click on the title.

H&M and WalMart actually paid employees to destroy clothing, so no one could wear it. There are thousands of homeless & hungry people in NYC who could use this clothing. If they do not want to donate it, is there no store that functions as place that could buy the bulk for a blanket price and sell it off for much cheaper prices to people who really need it? I will try to figure this out. How does Marshall's and T.J. Maxx work? Where do they buy their items from?
