TEXAID IN THE MEDIA: SRF 1 REGIONAL JOURNAL AARGAU SOLOTHURN
In today’s regional journal Aargau Solothurn, the SRF reports on the introduction of the regulation for the avoidance and disposal of waste (VVEA) in relation to used textile collection in the canton of Aargau. Philipp Stoller, managing director TEXAID Switzerland, was also able to say a few words on the matter.
In the VVEA, which came into force on 01/01/2019, used textiles were declared as a recyclable material which must be collected separately. The regulation also stipulates that it is to be ensured that such used textiles are recycled. Leaflets for municipalities to take sustainability criteria into account when awarding the licence were prepared by Pusch or Kompass Nachhaltigkeit for German-speaking Switzerland, and by Cosedec for French-speaking Switzerland.
