|Abstract||s we move forward to the twenty-A first century, the textile industry is faced with a monumental challenge-what to do with nonhazardous solid waste. With more than 40 % of the 6034 existing landfills due to close in less than five years, it is time to think of alternatives. ' Recycling of nonhazardous solid textile waste is a viable alternative. While recycling is not new to the textile industry, it is now a necessity brought on by increased fees at landfills and decreased availability of landfill space.2.J Recycling is more than simply a trend or a new marketing campaign designed to make a profit-it is an economic necessity. However, the responsibilities of recycling cannot be shouldered by individual companies or industries. Recycling must be an integrated effort, a As landfill costs rise, so does the pressure to increase recycling of nonhazardous waste. A study was conducted to determine the attitudes of textile manufacturers towards market acceptance of recycling textile fibers into new textile products. A questionnaire elicited responses from 90 of 157 manufacturers in seven textile Standard Industrial Codes (SICS) in North Carolina, including small, medium and large-sized companies. Survey results produced a profile of current practices and attitudes and pointed out market barriers and strategies. The three strongest barriers to recycling mentioned were lack of market, lack of equipment and cost of product. Suggested marketing strategies included pricing on the low end and cooperative advertising.|
