Textile waste – A literature review and a study of the management in a number of municipalities
The purpose with this report was to get a picture of how the textile waste management works today in the Swedish municipalities, with the main focus being Umeå. The purpose was also to find out what kind of plans the municipal water and waste disposal company has for this work. The study began with contacting the municipal water and waste disposal company in Umeå. The next step was contacting other municipal disposal companies in Västerbotten and also some of them in other parts of Sweden. The results showed that textile waste management is not a single service in the municipalities; it is included in the everyday work with waste management. For example, the municipal water and waste disposal company in Umeå has got a waste charge with the consequence that the households must pay per weight for the household waste to stimulate them reducing all kind of waste, including textiles. In municipalities that have an especially work with textile waste, the work is based on collaboration with relief agencies. Whether the municipalities have an especially work with textile waste or not, many of them are open minded for some sort of work to reduce the amount of textiles in the household waste, even if there are no plans yet.
