Paving the Way to 2025

This project is for local governments and post-consumer textile entities leading up to the separate textile collection mandate in 2025.  Participants collaborate using a data-driven approach to PCT management, in order to increase reuse and recycling, reduce waste, and implement citizen level communications that make textile flows transparent and circular.

Goals

  • Build successful public-private partnerships for textiles by using standard data and metrics to quantify textile flows and measure the impact of new practices

  • Characterise post-consumer textiles over time to increase reuse and recycling and decrease handling costs

  • Improve publicly available data and transparency of textile flows for citizens
