What is Cardboard Waste?
The commercial and non-residential sectors account for 90% of cardboard packaging. Many industries, including retail, manufacturing, food service, healthcare, education, and government, rely heavily on cardboard. Rather than storing cardboard in the wheelie bins, it makes more sense to bale or compact it.

Why Recycle Cardboard Waste?

By recycling, we can avert numerous environmental impacts. Recyclable materials reduce raw material requirements during production, and recycled items are often easier to manufacture than virgin goods. Moreover, recycling can contribute to lowering littering, pollution of air and water, as well as providing employment. Recycling also helps with
- Conservation of natural resources
- Litter reduction
- Pollution reduction
- reducing the demand for limited landfill space
- Job creation
- Getting rid of poverty
- Encouraging sustainable living.
How is Cardboard Recycling Done?
The first step in recycling cardboard is collecting the boxes. Whether you are an office or a company, there are two ways of collecting. You would begin by collecting cardboard boxes from internal divisions within your company or organization and then Liverpool Waste will then come to your company to collect the overall waste.
To ensure the cardboard boxes are recycled properly, they must be sorted once they arrive at the recycling center. There are two common types of cardboard: boxboard and corrugated board. It’s pretty easy to distinguish between these two types of boxes. Boxboard boxes are small and do not have any coatings. Corrugated boxes are typically larger and are frequently used to hold boxboard boxes.
After the sorting, the cardboard is then turned into a pulp. Soaking boxes in water is the simplest approach to turn them into paper pulp. Chemicals will be used by recycling centers to speed up the pulping process. The pulp is then combined with new pulp created from materials used in the production of new paper, such as wood chips. It is possible to produce paper solely from recycled pulp. The issue with this, though, is that the final paper will be of poor quality. It will appear dingy and will show signs of wear and tear quickly. Fresh materials, such as wood chips, are added to the mix to eliminate this problem.
At this point, we’re looking at pulp that’s ready to be shaped into whatever shape we want. The virgin paper materials are added, then dried. The material is dried on a conveyor belt or a table, and as it is drying, it passes through a dryer-type machine, which extracts all of the excess water and gives it its final shape. This is known as linerboard, and it is ready to be utilized to make new boxes and other paper items.
