J&G have recently made a substantial investment in a brand new wash plant at their Blandford based site in Dorset and have recruited two additional employees, including a new recycling manager as a direct result.
J&G Environmental has recently won a number of new contracts as increasing numbers of businesses see the company as their best option for effective print waste disposal.
From 1st April there are changes to the six figure premises code and hazardous waste producers no longer need to register with the Environment Agency.
Increases in UK landfill charges will be less severe this year - but will still rise and incur additional costs for printers who opt to dispose of their waste in this way.
Changes to the revised technical guidance (WM2) introduced by the Environment Agency means any used packaging which has contained hazardous waste such as solvent or mineral oil and which has not been cleaned or decontaminated is now classed as hazardous waste.
J&G Environmental says it has detected a significant increase in calls to its advice and website response services, especially from printers seeking information about the recycling potential of their waste by-products.
UK printers could face a further hefty hike in waste disposal costs in April when Landfill Taxes are due to rise again, potentially adding thousands of pounds to a company's annual waste disposal fees.
