Legal recommendations on recovery of textiles

At this stage, the URBANREC project aims to gather comprehensive and balanced input on legislative recommendations concerning the recovery and uptake of recycled textiles from bulky waste. Interested stakeholders are invited to share their views by filling in a short online survey. The gathered opinions will contribute to drafting policy recommendations to EU policy-makers.


One of the URBANREC project’s objectives is to propose a set of recommendations for specific legislation on bulky waste. For this purpose, ACR+ coordinates a Working Group on legal issues which gathers a range of relevant stakeholders and meets at regular intervals, discussing each time a specific topic related to the management of bulky waste and its integration into the EU legislative framework. 


At this stage, the URBANREC project aims to gather comprehensive and balanced input on legislative recommendations concerning the uptake of recycled textiles from bulky waste. All interested stakeholders are invited to share their views by filling in a short online survey and to forward the survey to others who might be interested in providing their input. The gathered opinions will contribute to drafting policy recommendations to EU policy-makers.



The survey follows a previously organised meeting of the Legal Working Group focusing on the 


hurdles faced by industrial stakeholders to introduce second-hand plastic materials on the market. During this meeting held in spring 2018, it was stated that both recycled plastics and textiles share similar challenges in terms of legal barriers to their market uptake.


The survey can be accessed on https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/URBANRECsurveyLWGonTextiles until 18 January 2019.
