Print waste collection and recycling specialists J&G Environmental have secured a full service waste management contract with one of the UK’s leading specialist packaging printers.

Medica Packaging, the Crewe-based pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging provider, has tasked J&G with handling all of its post-production waste including aluminium plates, ink containers, waste ink and chemicals.

Medica are a major supplier of high quality printed cartons and leaflets in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and other closely related sectors.

J&G will collect waste from Medica’s facility on a weekly basis, and provide an on-call service at times of particularly high waste production. The company will also provide Medica with a range of collection facilities such as cages and drums to enable essential waste separation.

Medica’s Health, Safety & Environmental Manager Paul Wassall said: “The pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors in which we operate are highly regulated and waste management is a key part of our ISO 14001 environmental compliance. The J&G team are very reliable and by working with them over the last few years, we have been able to improve our efficiency to ensure we exceed all our environmental targets.”
