EuRIC Position on EPR Schemes for Textiles
Setting up Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in the field of textiles for producers and importers
of new clothing, in line with the minimum requirements set in the Waste Framework Directive4
be welcomed by the textiles’ re-use and recycling industry only if it helps bridging the design and the
end-of-life treatment stages. EPR should also support the existing system of re-use which is the largest
activity of the textile recycling industry as well as the demand for recycled fibers.
