As part of the acquisition of Todd Waste Management in 2016-17, Yorwaste also acquired the subsidiary business Toddpak Limited. Toddpak functions by trading the value of Packaging Recycling Notes (PRNs). Simply the business takes a position based on an expected future value of these notes, it is akin to trading stocks.
Yorwaste have received a firm offer from an external party for Toddpak which is considered to be good value to North Yorkshire County Council (as majority shareholder of Yorwaste).
