STOCKHOLM – Sweden is to introduce 'extended producer responsibility' (EPR) legislation for clothing and textiles from 1st January 2022, following a government inquiry launched a year ago.

The new EPR will be phased in over several years with licensed textile collections starting on 1st January 2024. It’s hoped that from 2028 onwards, at least 90 per cent of the textile waste collected by the new system will be re-used or sent for material recovery.

It will apply to clothes, household textiles, bags and accessories, and the obligation to separate textile waste from other waste will affect all Swedish households and all businesses that produce textile waste.
