Local authorities together with businesses and organisations of all sizes are invited to the Smurfit Kappa Recycling stand (878) to find out what makes its paper and cardboard recycling services truly sustainable. Throughout the show Smurfit Kappa Recycling will be offering visitors the opportunity to register for a free waste audit which includes a site visit and written report with advice on legislative compliance. Aiming to entertain as well as inform, the stand will also feature a professional caricaturist who will be creating on-the-spot caricatures for lucky visitors on 15 and 16 September.
With its own paper mills in Birmingham and Kent providing a reliable market for 500,000 tonnes of recovered paper annually, Smurfit Kappa Recycling offers:
- Reassurance of final destination and a full audit trail: recovered paper is reprocessed in the UK, used through the Smurfit Kappa Group supply chain and converted into cardboard boxes and containers. This enables Smurfit Kappa UK to collect and recycle as much paper based packaging as it produces.
- Action on climate change: Smurfit Kappa has reduced its carbon footprint by 12% and is the first multi-site packaging company to receive the Carbon Trust Standard. Other key certifications include ISO 14001 and FSC Chain of Custody.
- Flexible pricing
- Guaranteed collections
- Flexibility in how material is supplied: baled or loose, delivered or collected. Customers can take advantage of Smurfit Kappa Recycling’s nationwide network of haulage and bulking facilities, or deliver direct to the mills and depots.
“Waste cardboard and paper producers in both the public and private sectors are looking for robust environmental credentials and a flexible approach to protect themselves from the volatility of the markets. Visitors to our stand at RWM will discover how we can tick all of these boxes and work with them to develop truly sustainable recycling solutions,” said Simon Weston, managing director of Smurfit Kappa Recycling.
