Birmingham initiates textiles collection & recycling plan
Jun '12

Birmingham, the most populous British city outside the capital London, has initiated a plan to collect and recycle textile ad clothing items in partnership with local charities, as a part of its effort to increase both earnings and volume of the material collected.

Under the partnership, the Birmingham City Council would pool the textile and clothing items and sell them in bulk.
The textiles and clothing collection and recycling project, initiated by the City Council in collaboration with charities, would result in reduced transport and contract management costs, decreased carbon dioxide emissions and a smooth administration process.
Buy for Good, the Birmingham-based community interest firm, and the Council will together manage the procurement process.
The new initiative is aimed at increasing the earnings for all charities while reducing the volume of clothing that is sent to landfill.
The initiative is being supported by the Local Government Association (LGA) which has provided a £20,000 grant to the scheme.
The pilot programme would also review the on-street clothing collection arrangements so as to achieve operational efficiency and increased earnings from a better streamlined management process and more volumes.
