Some figures

On an average week LMB now collects 170 to 200 tons of textiles, clothing and shoes. 80 per cent will be sorted and exported for re-use, 10 per cent that isn't fit for re-use will be cut into wiping cloths, 5 per cent will be sent for flocking and felting, leaving a minimal 5 per cent waste, incorporating household rubbish, hangers and single shoes.
