What is cardboard waste recycling?

Is your business creating a large amount of cardboard? At Plastic Expert, we can provide you with an eco-friendly waste management service for all of your paper and cardboard waste. This will help your organisation to cut CO2 emissions and reduce energy consumption. We can even provide cardboard bins and balers to help you store the materials and allow them to become more profitable. The cardboard and paper recycling process will then allow your waste items to be repurposed and introduced back into the market.
We offer recycling for all types of cardboard and paper, such as corrugated cardboard, confidential waste like sheets of paper documents, and other various packaging. After your waste collection, the waste will be transported to our licensed facility to enter the recycling process, where materials are mixed with water to break down for repurposing.

What are the advantages of 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 landfill space is saved. Recycling cardboard also means that fewer trees need to be felled to feed our ever-growing need for packaging. It takes approx 12 trees to create one tonne of paper for newspapers!
The renewable factor – when the cardboard goes through the final phase of the recycling process, wood chips from birch and pine trees are added. These trees are much faster growing than hardwood trees. In addition, they can be grown in various climates meaning that they can be planted in specific locations, managed and cut quickly for the recycling programme. It does not take long to replace them, creating a closed loop of recycling.
Energy is saved – Recycling cardboard and paper saves huge amounts of energy from being used during the production of these materials.
Job creation – the whole recycling programme has created a new industry in waste management services. There are jobs at all levels from research and development, to transportation, to factory workers.
