Championing Textile Recycling: Roberts Recycling Celebrates Global Recycling Day

Welcome to Roberts Recycling Ltd – As we celebrate Global Recycling Day, we take pride in our commitment to making a positive impact on the environment through textile recycling. Since our establishment in 2009, we have dedicated ourselves to keeping textiles out of landfills and reducing the carbon footprint associated with fashion waste.

At Roberts Recycling, our mission is clear: to extend the lifecycle of textiles and recycle them ethically when they come to the end of their useful life. Through our efforts in collecting, sorting, and reselling tons of fashion waste every week, we play a vital role in helping UK brands avoid sending their returns and excess stock to incineration or landfill.

But as we mark Global Recycling Day, we also reflect on the question: How can we better textile recycling in 2024? Here are some key considerations:

  1. Investing in Innovation: In 2024, we are committed to investing in innovative technologies and processes to improve textile recycling efficiency. By embracing automation, artificial intelligence, and robotics, we can enhance sorting accuracy and increase the scalability of our operations.
  2. Enhancing Collaboration: Collaboration is key to advancing textile recycling. In the coming years, we will strengthen partnerships with fashion brands, waste management companies, and government agencies to create a more integrated and sustainable recycling ecosystem. Together, we can develop innovative solutions and implement best practices to better manage textile waste.
  3. Empowering Consumers: Educating and empowering consumers is essential for driving positive change in textile recycling. In 2024, we will focus on raising awareness about the importance of textile recycling and providing convenient recycling options for individuals. By encouraging responsible consumer behavior, we can increase textile recycling rates and reduce waste.
  4. Ensuring Transparency and Ethical Practices: Transparency and ethical practices are fundamental to our approach to textile recycling. In 2024, we will continue to uphold strict environmental and labor standards, ensuring that textiles are recycled responsibly and ethically. By maintaining transparency throughout the recycling process, we build trust with our partners and customers.
  5. Expanding Infrastructure: To better textile recycling, we must expand collection infrastructure and recycling facilities. In the coming years, we will work to increase the availability of textile recycling collection points in communities and establish new processing facilities. By expanding infrastructure, we can make textile recycling more accessible and convenient for everyone.

As we commemorate Global Recycling Day, we reaffirm our commitment to championing textile recycling and driving positive change in the fashion industry. Together, let us work towards a more sustainable future, where textile waste is minimized, and resources are conserved for generations to come.

Thank you for joining us on this journey towards a greener, more sustainable world.
