One of the most well-known people in the recycling and waste management industry is to join aluminium can recyclers Novelis as national manager.
Former Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee (LARAC) chairman Andy Doran will begin work at Novelis in April.
He will be responsible for developing and implementing Novelis’ strategies to help drive aluminium packaging recycling performance in the UK to meet 2008 packaging recycling targets. He will also be actively involved in working with European aluminium recycling programmes.
“There are many challenges to be faced in the coming months and years, but Novelis is a company with a strong heritage of driving change and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to its future.”
This isn’t the first time that Doran has worked for the company, as he was one of the original employees in Novelis’ (then known as Alcan Aluminium Can Recycling) first UK can collection operation established in the early 1990s, alongside a £28 million investment in Europe’s only used beverage can recycling plant.
He has also worked for the London Borough of Hillingdon and Surrey County Council. He was chairman of LARAC from 2003 to 2005.
Currently, he works on the waste strategy team at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs as head of local authority waste performance.
Doran replaces Rick Hindley who left Novelis in December.
