Students help to tackle textile waste with new video
Some 100kgs of textiles is thrown away into the general rubbish bin in West Sussex every five minutes, costing over £1 million pounds a year in disposal costs. To help reduce both the waste and the costs of its disposal - whilst education young people, the local authority went back to school... the Chichester Free School - and got its students involved in a new film aimed at getting more people in the county 'Tackling Textiles'.
The team used 100kgs of clothes, towels, blankets and sheets in the video to create the recycling symbol. The students were also asked questions on their perceptions of recycling.
"Remember, if you are unable to reuse or repair your textiles you can recycle them, by taking them to your nearest Household Waste Recycling Site or bring bank site and putting them in the textiles bin," says a council spokesperson.
