A Nottingham family-run firm, Shredall SDS Group, has won the award for Paper Recycling Business of the Year 2021 at the Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management.
This award recognises the local company’s outstanding commitment to sustainability and its achievements in the paper recycling industry, celebrating its success in shredding and recycling 5,992,416kgs of paper over the last year.
Putting this into context, all of this recycling helped to produce 1,185,999 toilet rolls and saved: 113,856 trees, 46,237,482 litres of water, 27,079,728 KWh of electricity, 19,775m³ of landfill space, 13,183 litres of oil.
The business stands out for its environmental work, recycling 100% of the paper and cardboard waste that it processes for customers and ensuring that nothing goes to landfill – this is particularly important at a time when paper and card account for one fifth of all UK waste.
Nik Williams, group managing director at Shredall SDS Group, had this to say about the award: “We are delighted to have won such a prestigious award and to be recognised as the UK’s Paper Recycling Business of the Year 2021 is fantastic. There are some big players out there, but our tonnage is growing fast. All of this along with our 100% recycling record makes it all the better for the environment. We continue to work hard so we are thrilled for our team. Thank you also to our suppliers and buyers.”
