Funding to Support Textile Recycling and Re-Use

Funding to Support Textile Recycling and Re-Use

Grants of between £20,000 and £170,000 are now available to commercial and not-for-profit organisations of any size to support clothing or linen waste textile recycling and re-use. The aim is to keep waste textiles out of landfill so that it remains a valuable resource.

WRAP is offering a total of £1.5 million in grants for projects that use innovative ideas, technologies and equipment, and that fit a range of criteria, including demonstrating “innovation beyond normal practice”. Projects also require match funding: 10% from not-for-profit and 50% from commercial organisations.

Funding is intended for capital expenditure only; either for equipment or technologies (excluding software apps) that enable recycling or re-use. Financing comes from Defra’s £18m Resource Action Fund, which supports resource efficiency projects across the board.

Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis until WRAP closes the scheme (or all funds are allocated).
