CO2Sense Yorkshire is providing support to paper recyclers in the area in order to increase paper collections, up sales and create jobs.
The new consultancy - which has merged Resource Efficiency Yorkshire, Future Energy Yorkshire and Carbon Action Yorkshire has launched a business support programme that will work with Yorkshire and Humber paper recyclers.
CO2Sense Yorkshire paper project manager Mark Gregory said: One clear message from delegates at the launch event was there is a need to communicate the business case for paper recycling to waste producers and promote the value of segregating different grades of paper waste. CO2Sense will build this into its business support programme and work with paper recyclers to build their capacity to deliver recycling services that offer higher quality paper to end markets.
Over 40 representatives from paper-related businesses, local authorities and business support agencies attended the launch, with many signing up to efficiency initiatives as a result.
