Palm Recycling and Berryman have been awarded contracts to recycle paper and glass for four local authorities in Devon in the UK.

Palm Recycling will process 14,000 tonnes of used newspapers and magazines and Berryman will be responsible for recycling 12,000 tonnes of glass jars and bottles per year.

The contracts run for three years from 1 January 2014 and are worth £11m combined. An option exists to extend the contract period by a further two years.

The four additional councils that form the Devon Authorities Waste Reduction and Recycling Committee can also join the contracts at a later stage.

The contracts ensure that Devon’s council newspapers and magazines are recycled in the UK.

Palm Recycling business development director Mandy Kelly said that the recycling contract is necessary for reprocessing of paper materials into fresh newsprint.
