Publishers praised for hitting recycling target five years early

The Government has praised magazine publishers for their recycling achievements.

Results from the representative body for magazine publishers the Periodical Publishers Association, showed that almost 72 per cent of magazines read by consumers were recycled in 2008. This means that the recycling target for magazine publishing has been met five years before its 2013 target.

Minister for rural affairs and environment Dan Norris said: PPAs achievement in reaching its target early is great news. I know that PPA and its members have worked hard to reduce the level of waste in the production processes. This success demonstrates what can be achieved when Government and industry work closely together.

PPA head of environment and production Rose Benjamin explained: Magazine publishers have worked hard to drive out waste from their production processes working hand-in-hand with their printers. Improved communications, high quality digital proofs and right-first-time printing means that less ink, energy and paper is used in magazine publishing than ever before.
