Hertfordshire announces county wide textile recycling contract

A contract to sell recycled textiles across all 11 Hertfordshire counties has been announced by the Hertfordshire Waste Partnership.

The contract, which was awarded to Cookstown Textile Recyclers is predicted to generate almost £800,000 per year across Hertfordshire, and up to £2.4m throughout the lifetime of the contract, with contract managers Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council to receive £30,000 in additional income.

Hertfordshire Waste Partnership chairman county councillor Derrick Ashley said: “This contract is set to generate substantial additional income which is vitally important in supporting the extensive range of recycling services provided across the county.”

The decision to create a county-wide contract for textiles follows similar partnerships for paper and packaging materials.
