BBC 5 Live Enquiries

Following the programme broadcast on BBC Radio 5 Live on 18th March 2018 (Five Live Investigates), the Textile Recycling Association would like to thank those people who have come forward with suggestions about using tracking technology so that our members can track the theft of clothing banks.

We would  like to assure you that tracking technology is already widely used in the sector.  With regards to the particular problem that was highlighted in the Five Live Investigates programme, we often know who is responsible and where the clothing banks end up before the tracking technology and serial numbers removed.  The main problem that we have had to date is the lack of enforcement action taken by the the police and other investigating authorities.

Thank you for your suggestions though.

Mattress  Recycling Enquiries

There is currently no trade body representing the mattress recycling industry and regrettably we are currently not in a position to provide detailed answers on matters relating to this issue. However, if you are from a mattress recycling business and think you may be interested in being part of new trade body you can register your interest by e-mail

If you are looking for a mattress recycling business there are a few organisations engaged in this in the UK. Information about them can be found by searching for “Mattress Recycling” on the internet.
