Supporting Textile Recycling in Wales – Important Update for Welsh Businesses

Important Update for Welsh Businesses: 6th April 2024
In light of the Welsh Government’s commitment to environmental sustainability, new regulations are being introduced, mandating all workplaces in Wales to separate their waste for recycling. These changes are a significant step towards achieving the national target of recycling 70% of waste by 2025 and transforming Wales into a zero-waste nation by 2050.

Key Materials for Separation:

  • Food (for premises generating over 5kg of food waste per week)
  • Paper and card
  • Glass
  • Metal, plastic, cartons, and other fibre-plastic composite packaging
  • Unsold small Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
  • Unsold textiles

Why the changes?
The Welsh Government’s focus on reaching ambitious recycling targets aligns with our shared commitment to environmental stewardship. These changes are essential to enhance the quality and quantity of recycling, playing a vital role in reducing carbon emissions and achieving zero waste by 2050.
