RWM visitors can generate revenue from paper and cardboard recycling while supporting UK manufacturing and improving the carbon efficiency of their waste management operations.
Smurfit Kappa Group, world leader in the manufacture and supply of paper-based packaging, is investing £98M in its Townsend Hook, Kent, paper-making facility, securing the supply of lightweight corrugated paper for Smurfit Kappa’s packaging operations in the UK and Ireland. The new paper mill, together with the Group’s FSC certification will offer the most sustainable approach to packaging production in the UK. Together with Smurfit Kappa’s SSK mill in Birmingham, this provides a long term recycling solution for a valuable UK resource.
Smurfit Kappa Recycling’s recovered fibre experts will be on hand throughout RWM to discuss visitors’ recycling needs and helping to find practical solutions from its flexible range of services for cardboard, mixed paper or confidential waste. The company already works with public and private sector organisations of all sizes ranging from the large local authorities and major PLCs through to smaller and medium-sized businesses.
With a national collection infrastructure Smurfit Kappa Recycling offers responsible UK-based recycling, full audit trails and guaranteed collections. Recovered fibre is reprocessed at Smurfit Kappa’s paper mills in Birmingham and Kent and then converted into cardboard boxes and containers.
