The recycling of all types of cardboard is not possible. Some of these include waxed cardboard, damp cardboard, and oily cardboard. Despite the fact that waxed, damp, and oily cardboard cannot be recycled, it can be composted at a commercial composting facility. In order for cardboard to be recycled, it needs to be not contaminated by other materials, especially food and oils. 

Cardboard Recycling Process

It is generally less expensive to recycle cardboard waste than to dispose of it because it avoids landfill taxes. It’s normally based on the tonnage of material it fills, although it may also depend on how many sacks or bags it fills. Our team works with you to determine the pick-up frequency for your cardboard waste that is most appropriate to your business. Recycling cardboard works very much like recycling paper. Here is how to do it:

First, we collect the cardboard waste to be delivered to recycling facilities. When cardboard arrives at a recycling facility, it is divided into various categories based on the components it is made of. Following sorting, the next step is shredding, followed by pulping. Shredding breaks down the cardboard paper threads into small fragments. After being finely shredded into minute bits, the material is mixed with water and chemicals to break down the paper fibers, resulting in a slurry.

The pulped substance is then blended with more pulp, which is commonly made from wood chips, to help the finished product solidify and harden.

The pulped material is filtered extensively to remove any foreign materials as well as impurities like tape, threads, and glue. Impurities such as plastics and metal staples are then removed from the pulp in a centrifuge-like chamber.

The pulp is cleaned and combined with new production materials before being dried on a flat conveyor belt and heated cylindrical surfaces.

As the pulp dries, it travels through an automated machine that removes excess water and aids in the production of large rolls of solid sheet from the fibres known as linerboards and mediums. The linerboards are glued together layer by layer to make a new piece of cardboard.
