Sorting operators

The central link

With the objective of 300 000 tonnes of used textiles collected, sorted and recovered, sorting operators constitute the central link in the value chain.

“Sorting, the central link"

An operator is an operator of a used clothing, household linen and footwear sorting facility, all of which are collected separately. The operator meets the requirements of the accreditation specifications fixed by the eco-organisation.

Sorting constitutes the central link in the recovery chain: it's during this stage that the second life of the used textiles collected is decided. In the used textile industry, E.P.R is based on the capacity to reinforce textile recovery thanks to the sorting stage and its resulting outlets.

Textiles are sorted by sorting facilities with a view to being sold on:

— For reuse

— For recycling: garnetting of fibres and cutting textiles into cleaning cloths,

— For other forms of material recovery, Solid Recovered Fuel in particular.

Being officially approved enables you to:

- Be referenced in the national network.
- Be accompanied as regards improving sorting processes and innovative outlets.
- Be financially supported in your activity and its investments.
