The Anton Group, one of Europe’s largest print and direct marketing service providers, has appointed J&G Environmental to handle all the company’s non-paper waste management operations.

Print waste specialists J&G, based in Blandford, have been handed an initial one-year contract to collect and recycle the waste from Anton’s Essex headquarters site. Progress will be monitored via a series of update meetings and reviewed after nine months.

J&G have managed selected Anton waste streams such as chemicals and digital press components for 10 years but will now be responsible for the wider operations.

Anton Finance Director Chris Stockley said the two companies had enjoyed an excellent relationship. “This contract is an opportunity to extend the link between us,” he added.

“We see ourselves as an industry leader in our compliance with environmental standards, and the way in which we manage our waste is a key part of our ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 environmental and quality programmes.

“We have experienced good innovation and service from J&G and get good value back. They are diligent in their approach to helping us with our waste management responsibilities and we are hoping this initial contract will become long term.”

J&G provides waste management services to over 2000 UK print houses and newspaper publishing groups and now recycles around 95 per cent of the print waste it collects.
