Paper Recycling For Printers

As part of our social responsibility, all of our printed printers waste (wood free) is recycled at the RCF Mill in Sittingbourne. This keeps the Co2 “footprint” to the minimum.

Paper Recycling For Packaging

Packaging waste and general mixed papers are recycled back into cardboard boxes. Packaging waste and mixed papers is a global market and is sold to Countries as far away as Vietnam and China. Closer to home we have four main Groups throughout the UK.

General Commercial Waste

General Commercial Waste was once called Landfill and as a nation we happily consumed packaging that was just tipped at the local landfill site. In Kent there are no landfill sites left, general waste will typically be tipped at a transfer station and then much of that waste is then incinerated Prima will look at your General Waste and look for the best solution. Not every transfer station is the same and we appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of the various transfer stations.

Plastic and metal containers

Pallets, pallet wrap & wood recycling

Pallets are an obvious line that should be kept separate from your general waste. The cost of using Prima to dispose of your pallets will save you around 70% of your general waste costs.
Pallet stretch wrap is one of the largest components of a warehouse/distribution centre’s waste stream. Those who don’t recycle it pay to have it hauled away and is missing out on an revenue opportunity.

"We understand Paper Recycling better than most Companies, in fact we are the oldest paper recycling Company left in Kent!"
