WRAP has published an updated Textiles Collections Procurement Guide with a new case study to help local authorities develop mutually beneficial first-class textiles collection services.
The Textiles Collections Procurement Guide is for anyone who organises and manages textiles collections. It gives detailed information on the design, commissioning, management and communication of all types of textiles collections.
It aims to help local authorities and textiles collectors to introduce and operate effective and resilient collection arrangements that strike a balance between service costs and quality.
The guide is free to download and has been developed by WRAP as part of its work for the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP).
The aim of SCAP is to improve the sustainability of clothing across its life cycle – by bringing together industry, government and the third sector it aims to reduce resource use and secure recognition for corporate performance by developing sector-wide targets.
The SCAP Re-use and Recycling Working Group helped develop this new guidance.
