Tackling Textiles

Closed 15 Feb 2019

Opened 31 Jan 2019


This year the West Sussex Waste Partnership (WSWP) is helping residents in West Sussex tackle their textiles.

Every year, tonnes of unwanted clothes, towels, blankets or sheets are thrown in with the general rubbish, when they could have been repaired, reused, or even recycled in textiles bins at Household Waste Recycling Sites or textile bring banks at various locations across the county. 

At the beginning of January the WSWP started a campaign called ‘Tackling Textiles’ helping residents to find out things like:

  • What are textiles?
  • How can I repair my textiles?
  • How can I reuse or repurpose my textiles?
  • How and where can I recycle my textiles if they are beyond repair or reuse?

The WSWP would like you to complete this survey to tell them how much you know about tackling textiles. Then, once the campaign ends in April, they would like you to take the survey again to see if your knowledge has improved through the delivery of the campaign. The survey should take no-longer than 10 minutes to complete.

If you are interested in finding out more, please don’t forget to sign up to the waste e-newsletter for further information on recycling at the end of the survey. Thank you. 

If you require this information in an alternative format, please contact us on 01243 777100 or via email at haveyoursay@westsussex.gov.uk. If you are deaf or hard of hearing and have an NGT texting app installed on your computer, laptop or smartphone you can contact us on 18001 01243 777100.

The closing date is 15 February 2019 at 11.59pm.
