Aylesford Newsprint secures Dudley Council recycling contract
One of the UK’s largest newsprint mills, Aylesford Newsprint, has been awarded a four-year contract from Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council.
All of the paper recovered by the council’s 128,000 households and bank collections will now be reprocessed at Aylesford’s Kent mill where it will be recycled into newsprint.
Under the arrangement, Aylesford expects to reprocess 10,000 tonnes of post-consumer waste paper each year.
In total, Aylesford reprocesses 500,000 tonnes of recovered paper each year.
Aylesford Newsprint area manager Dave Moore said: “We’re pleased to have secured this contract. The high volume and superb quality of the materials we receive from Dudley is exactly what we are looking for and fits our reprocessing.”
Dudley Council waste development manager Paul Edmunds said: “We have worked with Aylesford for a number of years now, so we know that they provide a quality service and we are pleased to continue working with them.”
Aylesford has secured several new contracts over the year including contracts with Oxford City Council and Dover District Council.
