Sustained growth

As we start to reflect on 2019, we realise what a big year it’s been for the business. We recently contributed some of our most notable moments to Recovered Fibre News’ December ’round up of 2019′ edition of the magazine. If you missed the original write-up, catch up here…

2019 has been a big year for Environment-Agency-approved exporter of recyclable materials, Clearpoint Recycling – especially regarding the evolution of its workforce.

The Harrogate-headquartered firm has employed 24 staff over the last 12 months – its biggest employee expansion to date – making it a 43-strong team heading up its commercial, logistical and quality departments.

In appointment news, over the last year, paper for recycling (PfR) has proven to be an increasingly important part of the business, which saw Andrew Perkins hired as head of paper and Paul Clarke brought on board as the firm’s dedicated fibre buyer in the UK and Ireland.

Andrew will be leading Clearpoint Recycling’s expanding fibre operation in 2020 and is aiming to increase the annual tonnage of material the firm currently handles.

The company also supported the Women’s Recycling Alliance’s first birthday event in October – a network designed to connect and empower females within the waste and recycling industry – an initiative founded by Clearpoint’s development director Sarah Sanpher-McDowell.
