Dunelm launches in-store textile recycling scheme as part of commitment to sustainability

Homewares retailer Dunelm has rolled out out a textile recycling scheme in 10 of its UK stores, allowing customers to recycle old and unwanted household fabrics. The new scheme, which was previously piloted in the Nottingham and Stockton stores, launches on Monday 19th October and has been developed in partnership with leading recycling company First Mile. The initiative will see unwanted textiles recycled within the UK.

Dunelm has made a commitment to

becoming more sustainable as a business in 2020, through more sustainable product ranges, reduced carbon emissions, and waste management. The brand is urging its customers to help create a more circular economy, by prolonging the lifecycle of unwanted fabrics, which could otherwise end up in landfill. By making recycling easy for its

customers, Dunelm hopes to make this a much more common part of the product lifecycle. In order to take part, customers simply bring any clean, unwanted textiles to dedicated recycling areas in store. First Mile will then collect the waste fabrics, which will be responsibly recycled in the UK at carefully sourced facilities. Anything that cannot be recycled, will be

used to produce renewable energy for the National Grid.
