J&B Recycling has continued its 20th anniversary celebrations, after being awarded a Quality Recognition award by the Resource Association.


After being nominated by The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE) UK, which runs the carton industry’s recycling programme and represents giants in carton manufacturing such as TetraPak, SIG and Elopak, J&B was formally recognised at the Resource Association’s Annual Lecture in London. The awards were designed to give association members the opportunity to publically thank suppliers who deserve acknowledgement and recognition for their efforts.


Vikki Jackson-Smith, Managing Director of J&B Recycling, said: “Winning yet another award which recognises our commitment to processing the high-quality output, really puts J&B Recycling on the waste management and recycling industry map.


“Our success this year has cemented just how far J&B has come in the past 20 years, the company really is at the top of its game and with so many more investments in the plans for the next few years, the only way from here is up.”


J&B Recycling has developed a strong partnership with ACE UK Ltd and on matching the award criteria of meeting the relevant industry quality standards in the 17/18 financial year and having had no loads rejected by the re-processor, the nomination was shortlisted, reviewed by the Resource Association board, and approved for receipt of a Quality Recognition award.


Mandy Kelly, Senior Recycling Manager at ACE UK, said: “J&B Recycling is a recycling company that has continued to be successful in securing local authority contracts which has increased access to food and drink cartons for recycling.


“A sustained focus on MRF performance has ensured that their deliveries consistently meet ACE UK’s recycling quality standards for reprocessing at the carton recycling facility near Halifax, West Yorkshire.”


This year’s other winners included, Hertfordshire Waste Partnership, Newsprinters Ltd, and high street retailer Next Plc.


Over the past 12 months, J&B has won other prestigious awards in recognition of its hard work within the trade. Late last year the company was crowned 'Recycling Firm of the Year' by the International Corporate LiveWire Innovation & Excellence Awards, and this year was named the winner of the UK Excellence in Recycling Solutions Award by the Business Excellence Awards, whilst also being shortlisted in two categories at the National Recycling Awards.
