Sparing a few moments out of your day to recycle really makes a huge difference to the environment.
Thankfully, paper and cardboard recycling has become a normal practice. Decades ago, we did not recycle anywhere near as much as we do today. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Recycling is not only good for the environment, but it is good for businesses too, attracting customers via ethical credentials. Cardboard is a primary recycling material as it is already a natural resource. The fibres inside cardboard are processed from trees. Therefore, it can be reused multiple times. Furthermore, recycling 1 tonne of cardboard can save up to 17 trees, 7000 gallons of water and 400kW of electricity, so it is important to make the effort to dispose of it mindfully.
We can supply cardboard recycling bins for commercial businesses to keep on their premises, and we will empty them when they are full. This easy way of recycling can be arranged for competitive prices and it will also save cardboard from finding its way into landfill. So, if you want to improve your eco-credentials and find out about our commercial recycling schemes, please get in touch.
Firstly, we separate the card into types and grades, and it is then sent on for processing. The processing plant breaks down the cardboard and makes it into a pulp. Then, using large rollers, the slurry is spread onto sheets and is left to dry in preparation for cutting.
As card is a paper based product, almost every type can be recycled. However, we advise that greetings cards with glitter, decorations and embellishments are stripped before recycling, as these decorative items are not recyclable or environmentally friendly.
Recycling card is hugely beneficial to the environment. Firstly, it cuts energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and saves trees. It also reduces pollution associated with manufacturing, and transporting new paper, frees up landfill space, saves water and so much more.
