Smurfit Kappa Recycling, Stand 686, Recycling & Waste Management Exhibition, NEC, Birmingham
14 to 16 September 2010
Find out how you can drive up recycling rates, reduce your carbon footprint and support UK industry by visiting Smurfit Kappa Recycling on stand 686 at RWM this year to discuss your council’s paper and card recycling needs. Staff on the stand will be able to answer any questions you have about bring banks, quality, baling and transportation and can even arrange for you to visit their paper mill in Birmingham to find out how they turn paper and card into new packaging materials.
With its own paper mills in Birmingham and Kent handling 500, 000 tonnes of material annually, Smurfit Kappa Recycling can provide councils with a reliable UK market for recovered paper and card, guaranteeing collections and a full audit trail to final destination. Customers can take advantage of the company’s nationwide network of haulage and bulking facilities, while others close to the mills and depots can deliver materials directly.
One of the largest paper recyclers in the UK, Smurfit Kappa Recycling also provides bring banks at hundreds of local authority sites where residents can recycle their "mixed papers." Mixed Paper can include newspapers, magazines, cardboard, directories, Yellow Pages, envelopes and all fibrous-based packaging materials from cereal boxes to ready-meal sleeves, and is not just limited to newsprint, which can help to drive up recycling rates.
Ian Halson, recently appointed to the new role of local authority business development manager at Smurfit Kappa Recycling, has many years of experience in the paper recycling sector and 15 years working for a council. He understands the issues faced by recycling officers looking for reliable materials markets and is keen to explain the benefits of Smurfit Kappa Recycling’s service to RWM visitors on stand 686: "If you collect paper and card for recycling – whether that’s from the kerbside or through bring bank systems – we would love to talk to you at RWM this year. We urge you to take the opportunity to find out more about us and even to come on a guided tour of our own paper mill in Nechells, just down the road from the NEC!"
