Modern businesses are becoming more environmentally aware than in the last decades. Most managers now understand the importance of recycling and are willing to engage in recycling. Recycling is now a norm and necessary for a business’s ethical and environmental credentials.
It attracts customers, helps to meet legislation and benefits the environment. Cardboard is one of the most commonly used materials in homes and businesses. Cardboard quickly accumulates, and instead of letting it pile up, you can opt for recycling.
Cardboard recycling is an aspect of good recycling waste; it is important for many businesses. Waste Removal Fulham is a leading waste management company specialising in cardboard removal and recycling. We provide reliable, cost-effective and efficient cardboard collection services in Fulham.
Our cardboard collection services have no hidden costs, and we always opt for sustainable disposal. Whether you have cardboard waste or only a small quantity, we can collect and pack them and send them for recycling.
Cardboard is heavy-duty paper commonly used as packaging material. It is older than most people imagine and was first used during the 15th century in China. Cardboard is available in different forms, such as single-layer sheets but mostly in corrugated forms with flat surfaces surrounding S-shaped flutes.
Cardboard recycling has become common as more cardboard contains recycled fibre.
Cardboard is a commonly recycled material because the fibres used to make it are already processed from trees.
Burning any materials is only a good alternative it provides sufficient fuel. Cardboard doesn’t provide efficient fuel but releases gases and contaminants into the environment. Most local authorities have regulations on smokeless fuels, and burning cardboard falls short of the regulation.
Recycling waste isn’t always easy, as it involves commercial recycling costs, staff training, contamination and space implications. However, cardboard is an easy material to pack, store and transport for recycling.
The benefits of recycling include meeting legal obligations, maintaining your business reputation and environmental protection.
Business owners who produce regular volumes of cardboard in tonnes can get value for the cardboard collection or get free cardboard collections.
Cardboard is available globally, and the cost depends on large fluctuations. For instance, in 2020, the cardboard recycling cost was between £65 - £105 for a tonne. If you want to sell cardboard, ensure you remove the contaminants such as liquid, food, grease and Styrofoam-type packaging from the cardboard.
A cost-effective option to store cardboard for recycling is using mechanical balers because it ensures maximum returns and stores cardboard in the form required for recycling at the recycling facility.
Different grades of cardboard can be recycled together if the load is dry and doesn’t contain contaminants like chemicals, grease and food. Some wax-coated cardboards aren’t recyclable, but they are biodegradable.
Generally, corrugated cardboard recycling is separate from paper recycling, and you can mix thinner cardboard with paper.
Pizza boxes often have recycling symbols made from corrugated cardboard, making them recyclable. However, you can’t recycle pizza boxes if they are contaminated with food or grease, as they make the load useless.
Juices and milk are packed in Tetra Paks, which are plastic-coated cartons. Tetra Paks consists of 80% paper. Plastic and metal make up the remaining percentage of the cartons. You can’t recycle Tetra Pak with normal single sheets or corrugated cardboard loads. However, several Tetra Pak recycling facilities are opening in the UK.
The first thing you should do before recycling cardboard is to ensure the cardboard load is clean and dry. Ensure you remove contaminated items because they can’t be recycled. Next is removing the excess tape, but you don’t need to remove all the tape.
Ensure you pack the cardboard as flat as possible and store it in a container to keep it dry. If you want to recycle a large amount of cardboard, you can get the Mill Size baler, specific lidded containers or roll-off bins to store the cardboard.
If you are a domestic customer with large amounts of cardboard for recycling, you can take it to your local recycling facility. However, you can contact a specialised waste management company like ours to manage your cardboard recycling.
When cardboard waste arrives at the recycling site, the professionals sort it into corrugated boards, flat sheets or boxboards. While cardboard recycling is essential, you need to separate the cardboard because it goes into different products after recycling.
Next is shredding the cardboard into small pieces and mixing it with chemicals and water to achieve a slurry mixture. The recycling professionals will mix the recycled pulp with small amounts of pulp obtained from wood chips. This mixture undergoes filtering, centrifugal and chemical processes, which remove the plastic, tape, metal and ink. The clean pulp is dried and pressed into long sheets glued together to form new cardboard. Cardboard has different uses, such as a wide range of packaging options.
Cardboard makes up a significant amount of waste businesses produce and takes up a large amount of space.
Many companies dispose of cardboard waste because they don’t have sufficient storage space for large amounts of cardboard.
