Current status and recommendations for the future


Publish date
By 2025 all EU member states will be obliged to separately collect used household textiles for reuse or recycling. This report maps in detail the current status and extent of used textile collection and treatment in the Baltic States as well as the treatment and fate of the large quantities of used textiles imported from other parts of Europe for processing. On this basis it makes recommendations for policy goals and actions for governments and industry stakeholders to stimulate textile ecosystems that can position the Baltic region at the forefront of European textile circularity.
