Stichting UPV Textiel
Since July 1st, 2023, you, as an importer or producer of clothing and household textiles, are responsible for the waste phase of your products. This means you have to contribute to an appropriate separate collection system and achieve goals for reuse and high-quality recycling of textiles. The EPR for Textiles Decree is an individual legal obligation. It is costly and difficult to comply with these obligations individually. As a sector, we want to organize this challenge effectively together. In doing so, individual obligations are taken over and companies are actively involved in the development of the system. 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.
Currently, more than 650 companies have signed up as participants in the collective approach to make the sector more sustainable. This means we currently represent over 70% of the market. The number of participants is still growing every day. The current list of participants can be found on this website.
Do you have to comply with the EPR for Textiles Decree and have not yet taken action? You can still register your company with Stichting UPV Textiel to meet your EPR obligations.
