This fact once again underscores the significance of textile recycling for our environment and natural resources.

The significance of textile recycling
Approximately one fifth of the textiles collected goes towards the production of recycling materials that are used as secondary raw textile materials in automobile manufacturing, mechanical engineering or in the printing industry.
Unfortunately, far too many tonnes of used clothes are still discarded with the regular household waste which eliminates the possibility of reuse. Please help us to minimise the percentage of textiles disposed of in household waste and bring your used clothing to the textile containers set up for their collection.
