J&G Environmental is celebrating Global Recycling Day 2021 by reiterating its commitment to enhancing customers’ green credentials in an increasingly environmentally conscious industry.

Global Recycling Day 2021 will take place on 18 March, with this year’s occasion focusing on how recycling should be recognised as an essential service due to the critical role it has played in protecting the environment during the Covid-19 crisis.

J&G Environmental has long championed the importance of recycling – not just in printing, but also other industries – with a long-term goal of helping print companies to offer environmentally friendly and sustainable services.

Like recycling businesses outside the print sector, J&G Environmental has remained active throughout the pandemic, working with clients across the UK to keep their recycling chains moving.

Ahead of Global Recycling Day 2021, J&G Environmental’s General Manager, John Haines, has spoken about how recycling should now be a critical component of any print business if they are to remain an attractive proposition to potential customers.

“Last year was not easy for anyone, but something that remained clear to us was the desire among printers to remain committed to their environmental goals and to maintain their green plans,” Haines said.

“Recycling is now a critical part of any print business; if you cannot demonstrate to your customers that you are not committed to recycling and other green initiatives, then there is a good chance they will go somewhere that is more conscious about the planet.”

As the leading waste management company in the UK, J&G Environmental has a host of services that will help printers to paint themselves in a greener light. From recycling printing waste and fluorescent lamps, to responsibly disposing of pressroom consumables and electronic waste, J&G Environmental can help.

“As the world recovers from Covid-19, there is no better time to explore the options available to you in terms of recycling and becoming a much greener operation,” Haines said.

“There has been a great deal of change in the industry, and indeed the world, over the past 12 months, but one key factor has remained very much the same – the need for all businesses to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

“J&G Environmental is in the perfect position to support printers looking for options and ways to become greener.”
