Local company offers free travel brochure recycling


23rd January 2013


Mayfield, East SussexLocal Company Waste Paper Solutions have announced that they will provide free travel brochure recycling collections for travel agents across Kent & Sussex for 2013.


The service has been created to encourage responsible disposal of the many tonnes of glossy travel brochures that go unused by companies across the south east every month. It is expected to significantly reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill as well as saving tour operators’ money by reducing their waste disposal costs.


Piloting the scheme, owner of Waste Paper Solutions Paul Crabtree says:


‘We collect from many travel agencies across the region who have previously disposed of their brochures in rubbish bins. It is illegal to dispose of commercial waste at residential recycling sites so companies are left with no option but to send their brochures to landfill. As well as the environmental impact, many shops do not have the capacity to store piles of brochures to be disposed as this can create a fire hazard, so a regular collection service will help tour operators run their business more responsibly and efficiently.’


Waste Paper Solutions believe that all businesses should be supported and encouraged to recycle their waste both efficiently and cost effectively. Their free travel brochure recycling service is a positive step towards helping one industry move in the right direction. 


Stephanie Milam, branch Manager at Baldwins Travel in Uckfield, has been using the service since 2010:


‘Waste Paper Solutions’ service enables us to recycle all of our surplus travel brochures. We send an email once we have run out of storage space and they come and collect quickly and with minimum disruption to our customers. We use them regularly and it really takes away the problem of having to dispose of such heavy, bulky waste’
