Cardboard recycling is an easy way to do your part for the planet and reach 0% to landfill with the help of other recycling options. Businesses in 2020 are recycling in increasing numbers to ensure they keep up their corporate social responsibility and please the environmentally conscious public.
We can collect and manage all of your cardboard waste, and we’re available 24/7. Cardboard is great to recycle as it is easy to break down and reconstitute into new cardboard. This process involves submerging the fibres in water and chemicals to recreate the pulp and then reforming it. As it is a versatile material, cardboard can be recycled many times over. However, the fibres shorten each time, meaning it eventually can’t be recovered any further.
Recycling is easy; different grades of cardboard can be recycled together as long as the total contents are kept clean and dry. Oils prevent the cardboard from being recycled as it binds to the cardboard fibres and stops the water and chemicals from turning it into pulp, creating holes in new cardboard products.
Corrugated cardboard should be recycled separately to single sheet cardboard and paper, which can usually go together because they will be made into different products once they reach the recycling centre.
In London, only around a third (34 per cent) of the capital’s household waste is recycled, well below the national average of 43 per cent. The low level of household recycling is all the more reason to take the lead and proudly show that your business recycles.
