Aylesford signs new deals

Aylesford Newsprint has furthered its commitment to working alongside local authorities for recycling by signing two new contracts.

The deals with Oxford City Council and Waverley Borough Council will see a continuation of up to 10,000 tonnes of paper recovered in those areas each year.

Aylesford Newsprint commercial manager Chris White said: "Working together and forming partnerships with local authorities have always been at the heart of Aylesford Newsprint's operations. We have always recognised the need to listen to and work with all of the parties involved within the recycling chain."

Waverley Borough Council was one of the first authorities to supply recovered paper to the Kent-based mill. A new five-year deal will allow the amount collected from kerbside and bank schemes to rise again.

Aylesford are continually securing contracts with local authorities, waste management companies and community enterprises, recycling more than 500,000 tonnes of used newspapers and magazines each year.
White added: "From the householders upward, everyone in the recycling process needs to be considered to ensure the best processes are instigated."

One in seven newspapers bought in the UK is recycled at the Aylesford mill, from which it produces 1% of the world's annual newsprint consumption.
