A waste specialist is keeping the UK’s top web-to-print company running smoothly by recycling 160 tonnes of its scrap paper – the weight of 20 elephants – every month.

Russell Richardson have not only taken on extra staff at their Attercliffe HQ, but are also shipping three vast compactor skips to the Bluetree Group to deal with the huge amount of paper trimmings it produces after printing millions of business cards and flyers.

Phil Mott, said: “Russell Richardson’s service is proving ultra-efficient and totally reliable. Everything here has to be cut to size, which produces a huge amount of scrap trimmings and cuttings. It’s imperative we have a totally reliable waste collection service.”

Russell Richardson’s sales manager Nicky Hellewell said: “We won the Bluetree contract on service and reliability, and the competitive rebates we offer. They’re our biggest client to date in terms of tonnage, and we are proving more than capable.”
