Smurfit Kappa Recycling will be on Stand 17G68 at the Recycling and Waste Management Exhibition. The Smurfit Kappa Group is the world leader in manufacturing and supplying paper-based packaging and this year revealed a £98 million investment over three years in its paper-making site at Townsend Hook in Kent.
This will ensure the supply of paper to Smurfit Kappa’s operations in the UK and Ireland. The Group will be giving the best solution to packaging production in the country and with its Carbon Trust Standard accreditation and FSC certification will be providing a long term solution for recycling a valuable resource for the UK. This comes at a time when the Group’s SSK mill in Birmingham is celebrating 150 years in the business.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to support UK manufacturing, improve the efficiency of their waste management operations and at the same time generate revenue from cardboard and paper recycling. Fibre experts from Smurfit Kappa Recycling will be there to discuss the visitor’s recycling requirements and hopefully find them a solution from its range of services.
Smurfit Kappa Recycling has an annual market and national collection infrastructure for half a million tonnes of recovered paper. They provide recycling for councils, businesses and many other organisations. It guarantees collections and gives full audit trails. Recovered fibre is processed and turned into cardboard boxes at the Group’s paper mills in Birmingham and Kent.
Apart from the exhibition, Smurfit Kappa Recycling will be making a joint presentation with Rutland County Council at the Local Authority Theatre on the 12th of September. Ian Halson from Smurfit Kappa Recycling and Sarah Hallam from the Council will be talking about various recycling projects that they have been involved in within the county, such as the network of paper banks.
