Waste Action Forum founder passes on chairman's mantle

The Waste Action Forum (WAF) has appointed UPM-Kymmenes head of recovered paper procurement Martin Green as its new chairman.

Green takes over from WAF founder Nigel Pritchard of Rockware Glass, who started the organisation in 2003 and stepped down as chairman at the end of May this year. Pritchard will stay on WAFs steering group and remain active in setting the organisations future direction.

Commenting on the new position, Green said: Our combined resource puts us in a powerful position. I am looking forward to working with our members and the steering group to influence Government thinking and policy on waste management in the UK.

WAF is a not-for-profit organisation which works to improve sustainable recycling performance and waste minimisation, and strengthen relationships between industry, the public sector and Government.  Its membership includes local authorities, reprocessors, packaging producers and waste collectors.
