Antalis and Reconomy align to assist with waste management

Antalis and Reconomy align to assist with waste management
Working alongside partner Reconomy, Antalis is now offering a coherent, knowledge-based approach to waste and recycling, which also engages the whole supply chain.

 The joint service approach can help customers to access current waste management practices, gather advice on reducing waste and making more sustainable product choices, as well as receiving proposals about how to manage their waste more effectively, whilst also saving time and money.

With a network of over 150 recycling contractors, Reconomy is a market-leading provider of outsourced recycling and resource management services and is an expert in managing waste from the print industry. They coordinate more than 12,000 waste movements every week and annually manage approximately 3m tonnes of waste.

Chris Green, Director of Visual Communications at Antalis UK said: “The Antalis and Reconomy partnership is designed to support our customers with managing their waste in the most responsible way possible, and the services Reconomy offers are certified by BPIF and endorsed by BOSS Federation. With consumer focus firmly fixed on the ecological effects of waste, brand owners are recognising the higher demand for more environmental practices. This is impacting directly on supply chain choices, and as an industry, we also need to promote and reinforce change to ensure it is implemented.”

The joint initiative aims to promote not only 100 percent environmental accountability on behalf of the print industry but to advise and offer alternative substrate choices based on environmental impact.

Chris Green added: “Printers inherently like to control their waste streams, especially where there is revenue involved. This practice, however, can take valuable resources away from the core activities of the business. Outsourcing this service allows our customers to put waste management in the hands of industry experts that they can trust and ensures the best environmental solution in handling different types of material waste.”

Every aspect of the process needs to be considered, from the appropriate choice of substrates, which will influence whether the material will be recycled, recovered, or landfilled when it becomes an end-of-life item. The process starts with an audit to assess current processes. From this, a waste report and proposal with recommended contractors, estimated savings, environmental compliance advice, as well as alternative environmental substrate options, can be provided.

Green concluded: “We want to educate and inspire companies with waste and sustainability challenges to think differently and embrace new concepts to create measurable business advantages.”
