Whitham Mills nominated by DS Smith for National Recycling Awards
Whitham Mills Engineering has been shortlisted in the prestigious National Recycling Awards 2015 becoming the only North West SME to make the final reckoning.
The company, based in the historic town on the Lancashire – Yorkshire border, has been shortlisted for its work with retail giant Tesco and paper-based packaging company DS Smith.
Whitham Mills’ engineers have designed and developed a labour-saving system to process waste card and paper from Tesco’s national distribution centres.
The patented roll-cage tipping system allows cages to be safely emptied in a fraction of the time compared to manual emptying as waste material begins its recycling journey.
Shortlisted in the Best Partnership category, Whitham Mills’ expertise will be judged against some of the biggest companies in the sector such as Waitrose, Kuehne & Nagel, Unipart and Biffa.
The awards winners will be revealed at the London Hilton, Park Lane on July 1st 2015.
