Oxfam to be sole supplier of textile banks to Sainsbury's

Sainsbury’s is to replace the Salvation Army with Oxfam as the provider of textile recycling banks at its stores.

In a statement, Sainsbury’s said the decision to work with Oxfam exclusively follows a “review of our textile recycling activities”.

The Salvation Army Trading Company (SATCoL), which previously shared the supply of recycling banks with Oxfam, ssaid it was “disappointed” by the decision.

SATCoL managing director Trevor Caffull said: “We are proud of our track record as the preferred textile recycling operator for most major UK supermarkets and over 330 local authorities throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland. Of the donations we receive, 99% is re-used or recycled, with only 1% going to landfill - and we continue to work towards zero waste.”
