SWINDON, UK, June 17, 2010 (Press Release) -Paper recycling in the UK is a huge success offering real economic and environmental benefits and providing skilled green jobs. Local Government supplies a significant volume of raw material to the paper recycling industries and, at a time of budgetary constraint, PaperChain can provide Local Government officials with a view on the future of the industry. With landfill tax increasing and rafts of policy from central government aimed at resource efficiency, there is a strong need for collaborative working to bring about the best outcome for all stakeholders.

To find out more about UK paper recycling, talk to PaperChain on Stand P55 at this year's Local Government Association (LGA) Group Annual Conference and Exhibition.

Staff will be on hand to discuss effective resource management, UK and global markets and the future of the UK paper recycling industries.

With a Membership base that represents the UK paper mills recycling 84% of paper and cardboard, PaperChain is ideally positioned to discuss the issues currently affecting both domestic and global recovered paper markets. Members recycled 3.3 million tonnes of recovered paper and cardboard in 2009, saving £180 million of landfill costs and over 4.4 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent compared with other UK disposal options.

The LGA Conference returns to Bournemouth International Centre this year, between 6 and 8 July.
