When WPT was founded in 1994, our main focus was on serving the markets in the Netherlands and Germany. Since those days we have steadily worked on expanding our network. Today we buy and sell waste paper, used plastics and secondary raw materials in Europe and operate on the export markets as well. We have achieved a leading position in the purchase and sale of waste paper and used plastics. This enables us to provide you with the material you need at any time.

1.7 million tons per year

In our network of suppliers and buyers, WPT today independently trades about 1.7 million tons of waste paper, which makes us a core partner of paper processing industries. Meeting quality requirements and ensuring supply performance are our guiding principles. 

Services for manufacturing and business

For enterprise and manufacturing customers and recycling companies, and therefore the entire waste disposal sector, we are a reliable partner in the processing of secondary raw materials. Our longstanding contractually secured disposal channels to recovery systems ensure a stable, uninterrupted take-up and recycling of materials. Whether in bulk or in pressed bales, we offer all kinds of individual logistics solutions by roads, rail or ship. The transport takes place with walking floors, tautliners, the export in ocean containers. We secure the fulfilment of customer requirements and optimal economic benefits.

Services for government customers

WPT has proven itself as a partner for government customers in a large number of public tenders. A qualified team ensures that our participation complies with all the applicable procedural rules of the respective countries, while adhering to high standards in the performance of services. Our service is completed with comprehensive documentation and proof of compliance with the customer's requirements.

On-site service and support

WPT's employees at our office in the Northern Netherlands are responsible for distribution and administration. The overall coordination of our operations takes place here. Our network of in-company sales representatives operating locally in the relevant countries today ensures both the purchase of waste paper and used plastics as well as their uninterrupted disposal. Our direct on-site customer support ensure short lines of communication, and rapid solutions for our customers. A comprehensive monitoring of all our processes ensures consistent quality control.

Our mission

Maintaining and optimising the use of secondary raw materials is more important than ever before. WPT trades globally in secondary raw materials. Through our operations, we help reduce the consumption of natural raw materials. We thereby contribute to protecting and strengthening the environment and the associated quality of life for future generations as well as the future viability of our company.
