Newport Paper acquires North East Recycling

Newport Paper, purchaser and recycler of recovered materials, has acquired the majority of the assets of paper merchant North East Recycling.

The acquisition continues Newport Paper’s strategy of becoming a “more vertically integrated recycling company” by complimenting its existing services of brokering and recycling with the new capability of collecting material at source. The newly formed company will trade as Newport Paper North East and continue to build on its experience of collecting cardboard, plastics and cans from printers, shops, businesses and schools in the north east region.

Newport Paper managing director Matthew Hoare said: “The collection of commercial recyclate at source compliments Newport Papers traditional services of collecting, processing and selling material from local authorities and waste management companies perfectly.  With this enhanced collection operation, our materials recovery facility, on-site sorting bays and exclusive contracts with world-leading reprocessors, Newport Paper is well positioned to grow in the future.”

Newport Paper North East will operate from a new facility in Blaydon which it claims will be “state of the art” and “make it one of the most efficient in the region for collecting and sorting commercial waste”.  Its services will include waste material collection, material sorting and recycling, supply of recycling containers, confidential material shredding, material baling and recycling audits and training.

The acquisition will enable Newport Paper to operate larger contracts with local authorities and waste management companies to process mixed paper and other bulk collected recyclables.
