Current Chief Executive, Simon Ellin, has announced his retirement at the end of March, and a revised structure has been put in place with the new appointments. Previously, Ellin was Chief Executive of both The Recycling Association and IWPP.

Sanderson will oversee The Recycling Association and the UK Security Shredding Association, while Burton will manage IWPP and the office and staff in Daventry. Sanderson joins The Recycling Association on 1 March and his recycling market news service, REB Market Intelligence, will be integrated into the work of the Association, becoming a Member benefit later in the year.

Craig Curtis, President, The Recycling Association, said, “I’m delighted that Chris and Paul will be taking on these roles under a new structure. Both have worked closely together over many years, and have a fantastic relationship. Of course, they have supported Simon Ellin in his role over this time and this means there will be a seamless transition up to when Simon enjoys his well-earned retirement. I’m confident that The Recycling Association and IWPP will continue to go from strength-to-strength under this new leadership.”

Sanderson added, “Having worked with The Recycling Association for many years now, I am excited to take on the role of its chief executive and build on the foundations achieved by Simon, Chris, the Board, the team in Daventry and the membership. Simon Ellin will be missed for all of the hard work, enthusiasm and skill he has shown as Chief Executive.”
