WRAP announced recently that its expanded business development service will allow small-medium (SME) recycling businesses across England to use local expertise through regional business advisors. SMEs in the recycling or reprocessing industry can receive free support and advice at any stage of their business development, according to the recycling enabling organisation.
In these challenging economic times, WRAP says its 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 other services.
The organisation helps individuals, businesses and local authorities to reduce waste and recycle more, making better use of resources and helping to tackle climate change. Established as a not-for-profit company in 2000, WRAP is backed by government funding from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
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.”
