Solutions for all Sectors
DS Smith specialises in helping businesses of all sizes to get the best value from their recycling and waste management. We provide solutions that deliver less waste, less cost, and less complexity, and we believe that any materials that can be recycled should not end up in incineration.
For over 40 years, we’ve been helping companies across a range of industries to increase their recycling rates. Our closed loop model ensures that material that should be recycled is actually recycled.
The high-quality paper and cardboard that we collect supplies our own paper mills with the material they need. We also trade paper to a network of trusted partner mills around the world.
Trading paper for recycling
As Europe’s largest recyclers, we manage over 5.5 million tonnes of material for recycling every year. Material that’s surplus to our own paper mills’ requirements is sold to our trusted partner mills, who rely on us to supply high quality paper for their own papermaking processes.

Our wealth of experience means that we understand the complexities of different industry sectors and we appreciate that no two organisations have the same recycling and waste management needs.
We’re proud to serve some of Europe’s biggest and best-known organisations, such as Auchan, Co-op, Tesco, and Smiths News, as well as thousands of smaller businesses and a variety of government organisations.
