Halifax-based textile recycling company BIU Group has had its business model included in the 2017 Parliamentary Review.

Celebrating best industry practice, the review shares insight across both manufacturing and government and is sent to more than 500,000 policy makers.

BIU Group collects and recycles unwanted clothes, shoes and household textiles and then sells the items on to raise money for its charity partners.

Since its formation in 2005, the company has generated £8 million.

The review highlighted how BIU creates long running relationships with charities, waste management companies, supermarkets and local authorities, collecting then selling textiles to customers across the globe.

David Swindells, BIU Group’s Managing director, said: “We are delighted our innovative business model has been recognised in the Parliamentary Review.

“Our motto is Excellence Always and while we can’t control global issues, we do have a flexible business model and are constantly improving and trying new approaches.”

BIU is currently working towards a zero-waste policy, with the aim of reducing the volume of textiles going to landfill.
