November 13th 2012 - Manchester Event to explore innovative textile recycling
  Recycling specialists I&G Cohen Ltd and Axion Consulting are co-hosting a key event on November 13th 2012 for local authorities, recyclers and waste management companies to explore innovative ways of diverting used clothing and textiles from landfill. Entitled ‘What a Waste!’, the one-day seminar at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester aims to raise awareness of how textile recycling can generate new income streams for these sectors as well as highlight the environmental benefits of recycling or reusing textiles. Recent figures from WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) reveal that 350,000 tonnes of clothing are being sent to landfill in the UK each year, with a further 70,000 tonnes destined for incineration. If it was all recycled or reused instead, it could generate revenue of £140 million, WRAP states in its ‘Valuing our Clothes’ report.
