Stichting UPV Textiel

As of July 1st, 2023, you, as an importer or producer of clothing and household textiles, will be responsible for the waste phase of your products. This means that you have to contribute to an appropriate separate collection system and achieve goals for reuse and high-quality recycling of textiles. It is costly and difficult to comply with these obligations individually. That is why INretail and Modint founded Stichting UPV Textiel. By joining forces, we ensure that the organization of a nationwide quality intake and processing system remains as efficient, effective and affordable as possible. By participating in the collective, you can easily and affordably comply with the EPR obligations.

On August 11, 2023, Stichting UPV Textiel submitted a collective notification to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management on behalf of its participants. Its receipt has been acknowledged, making the foundation formally a producer organization. In the participant list below, which is updated every two weeks, you will find an overview of our participants. Periodically an addition to the collective notification is made to the Ministry. As such, you can still register to fulfill your obligations.

Register your company

To join the collective, the first important step is to register your company. This can be done here. We ask you to do this as soon as possible so that we can inform you in time about the next steps needed to participate in the collective. Such as signing the participants’ agreement and making an estimation of the weight of the textiles you place on the Dutch market in 2023.
