Waste companies get free business advice

A government programme set up to stimulate recycling is offering free support to SMEs working in this field.

The Waste Resources & Action Programme (WRAP) has expanded its business development service to that recycling and reprocessing businesses can call upon advice from regionally-based experts.

The organisation says that it is especially important for these companies to develop robust business plans in these challenging economic times to ensure their sustainability.

WRAP's business development service offers wide-ranging support from raising finance, market information, access to funding for equipment, opportunities for staff training through to marketing, business planning and much more.

Marcus Gover, director of market development at WRAP said: "Equipping the UK's recycling businesses with the skills they need to become sustainable businesses is critical to developing our excellent domestic recycling industry, in the face of many global challenges.

"WRAP's business development service provides access to skills, knowledge and resources for SME recycling businesses - all available from a team of local business advisors."

Businesses interested in help, support, advice or just a conversation about how their operations might benefit from WRAP's business development service can call 0808 1002040 or visit: www.wrap.org.uk/recyclingbusiness.
