WEEE recycling initiative gets festival stage
European Recycling Platform (ERP) has announced the first-ever festival stage for Make Noise, the UK’s electronic recycling club night, at this year’s OnBlackheath Festival.
Founded in 2010, the partnership between ERP and Heavenly Recordings has toured the country promoting the importance of WEEE with help from the UK’s top DJs and producers, offering free entry to clubbers who hand over a small item of broken or unwanted electronics for recycling (above).
The Blackheath event is on 12-13 September.
Smurfit Kappa wins European supplier award
Smurfit Kappa has been awarded its second prestigious supplier award in recent weeks from Nestlé.
The paper packaging firm was named the European supplier of the year for all-round excellence among Nestlé’s suppliers.
It was recently awarded the European innovation recognition award.
Sims selects Brady software
Sims Metal Management has selected trading, risk management and settlement solutions provider, Brady to support the organisation’s global recycling operations.
Having used Brady’s software for many years in North America and Australasia, Sims’s Australian operations have now upgraded critical business systems to the latest recycling platform.
New Cardiff collections come into force
Cardiff residents who put out their rubbish in black bin bags instead of the new red and white bags could be fined £100.
Some areas of the city will be moving from a black bag collection to a wheelie bin. Other areas, where houses do not have a garden or off-street front area, will change to allocated red and white bags.
Those households will receive two free bag deliveries a year, a total of 78 bags, enough for the three bags of waste per fortnight allowed by the council.
