Communisis contract for waste managers

Communisis, one of Europe’s leading customer communications services providers, have awarded J & G Environmental a three-year hazardous waste management contract.

J & G will collect and process waste for Communisis sites at Crewe, Liverpool, Halifax, Leeds and Newcastle where the communications giant operates traditional litho print and digital print facilities.

Some 60 different waste streams, the majority of it headed for J & G’s recycling facilities, will include ink containers, toner, plastic packaging, filters, mineral oil and cartridges.

Communisis has a commitment to prevent pollution to the environment and aims to reduce waste and improve waste segregation. As part of their service, Blandford-based J & G will supply a range of pre-collection waste storage consumables, including metal plate stillages and lidded drums.

Communisis Group Health, Safety and Environment Manager Mark Hoile said: “We’ve been working with J & G for a number of years and have been very satisfied with their performance. This contract formalises what is already a good relationship whilst giving both parties improved control and awareness of waste management costs.

“Efficient waste management across all our sites is an integral part of the company’s environmental policy. J & G’s commitment to sustainability in the industry, and its recycling record, fits perfectly with our needs.”

Welcoming the contract, J & G general manager John Haines said: “We’re proud to be working closely with such a prestigious company as Communisis.”
