At the end of 2007, Valpak worked closely with Glasgow City Council to deliver a campaign to bring new recycling services to the attention of Glasgow householders. The campaign included leaflets, a schools poster competition and face to- face promotional activity, all supported by Valpak’s ‘WEEE recycle-more’ website.

Kepak Kirkham had previously worked with Valpak, of which Valpak Recycling is a wholly owned subsidiary, and felt it had received an excellent standard of service. Valpak Recycling was a trusted name and Kepak was therefore keen to look into what benefits Valpak Recycling could offer the company regarding its waste recycling obligations. Kepak reviewed a number of companies prior to making a choice and decided on Valpak Recycling due to its competitive rate for processing waste and the cost savings it could offer through direct processing of Kepak’s PRNs, saving Kepak both time and money.
