DS Smith Proposes Innovative Solutions to Key Packaging and Recycling Challenges

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): DS Smith continues to play a key role in redefining packages to help solve major packaging and recycling challenges.

According to Colin McIntyre, CEO of Paper and Recycling Divisions at DS Smith, the Annual report ‘Redefining packaging for a changing world’ outlines several initiatives by the company in addressing the recycling and packaging challenges faced by today’s society. The company has been an active campaigner for coffee cups recycling. Also, the company’s Kent mill could recycle up to 2.5 billion coffee cups every year. In addition, the company’s research had suggested that 1.5 million tonnes of plastic could be replaced every year from just five areas within supermarkets across Europe, he reminded.
