Cardboard recycling Near Me

At Plastic Expert, we can offer you great rebates for all of your paper and cardboard waste. This will help your organisation cut CO2 emissions whilst opening up a new revenue stream. Offering local recycling in Northampton and national, we help businesses across the UK manage their cardboard recycling bins through regular collections.
We can also provide cardboard balers to help you store the materials and allow them to become more profitable. The cardboard and paper recycling process will then turn your waste items into new products for the market.
We offer sustainable waste disposal for all types of cardboard and paper. Cardboard items we often collect include cardboard packaging such as corrugated cardboard boxes, confidential waste like sheets of paper documents and shredded paper. This is then transported to licenced recycling facilities.
The waste collected should be at a 4 tonne minimum, and either baled or flat-packed on pallets. This means the Plastic Expert team can complete cardboard collections efficiently.

The Benefits Of Paper And Cardboard Recycling

There are many advantages to having your business waste cardboard recycled:
The environmental factor: High volumes of paper and cardboard recycling means that incineration (waste-to-energy) is avoided. Recycling cardboard also means that fewer trees need to be felled to feed our ever-growing need for packaging. It takes approximately 12 trees to create one tonne of paper for newspapers.
Energy is saved: Recycling cardboard and paper saves huge amounts of energy from being used during the production of these materials.
Cardboard recycling is an environmentally-friendly process that involves converting waste cardboard into new products. As a cardboard recycling company, we work with businesses to collect their cardboard waste and transform it into reusable material. This helps businesses to reduce their environmental impact and create a more sustainable future.

Our Cardboard Waste Recycling Service

After purchasing commercial cardboard waste bales from companies we supply them directly to paper mills and cardboard recycling processors.
Cardboard is an extremely popular product, and for that reason, it is the highest volume waste packaging product that we recycle. Paper mills across the UK and the continent are in constant demand for the waste cardboard material we offer.

How To Recycle Cardboard Waste As a business

As a business, the best way to recycle bulk loads of cardboard waste is by working with a waste management company. If your business does not already have a baler, this is usually essential in receiving the best possible rebate for your waste materials. This equipment helps you store cardboard and paper appropriately for collections.

Where Do We Recycle Cardboard?

Our company collects waste cardboard and plastic from a wide range of locations, as shown below. We are committed to reducing the amount of waste sent to incineration and protecting the planet for future generations. Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help meet your recycling needs.

The Cardboard Recycling Process

The cardboard recycling process typically begins with the collection of waste cardboard from businesses. The collected cardboard is then transported to a recycling plant where it undergoes a series of steps.
The first step in the process is sorting the cardboard into different grades based on its quality and thickness. The paper mill can then mix the waste with water and chemicals in order to shred it down. This is then chopped up and heated to reduce the paste to a pulp. The pulp is then passed through cleaning equipment to remove contaminated items.
