Stephen Duffy is the Purchasing Director for Highlander International Recycling and has extensive experience in the technical aspects of paper recycling. Stephen was ten years with Smurfit Recycling, where he started off as General Operative and became Regional Manager for Scotland within 6 years. Stephen (38) left Smurfit in 2005 to take the lead role in sourcing recovered paper for Highlander’s mill partners and has been instrumental in the rapid growth of the company.
Stephen recently agreed to be a guest writer for Sustainable Ireland, the premier waste and recycling magazine for the Irish environment market and his column is a well known feature of the publication which generates a lot of interest for both producers and processors of recovered paper alike.
His regular market updates on both the magazine and our website have proven to be useful to all stakeholders in the recycling market and provide some context to what is happening in the industry and why.
