With the Revised Waste Framework Directive 2018, member states now have a mandatory requirement for the separation of additional waste streams including textiles by 2025.
So how can municipalities meet these new obligations?
Rijkswaterstaat is organising meetings for municipalities in the coming months. The aim of these meetings is to disseminate knowledge and experiences that were gathered in the ECAP textile collection report
and share views between municipalities how to improve their own collection of textiles.
A meeting has been arranged for the UK. If you’re interested in hosting a meeting for municipalities in your country, please get in touch
By the end of the year Rijkswaterstaat will also publish web-based guidance for municipalities on collection of textiles so watch this space.
