Textile recycling project plans expansion

Dee-Tex Project, a Saltney, Flintshire-based textile recycling service has registered a 1,123 percent rise in income during the last financial year. The textile recycling project has also been ranked first on other parameters including robustness of its business model, sustainability, and entrepreneurship.

The project now aims to set up a local industry in textile recycling during the next five years. It also aims to acquire additional premises needed for expanding its operations. In collaboration with both the public and private sectors, the company plans to even replicate its model across various regions and thus, generating more employment opportunities in the process.

Since its inception in 2006, the project has successfully raised over £40,000 for local charities and community groups. It has even supported unemployed residents by offering them voluntary work.

Presently, the project operates from a 4,600 sq ft warehouse. It also has two retail stores where it sells used textiles that otherwise would have led to over 300 tons of possible landfill each year. Besides the common people, Dee-Tex deals with charities, schools, community organizations, and other social groupings at different levels.
