Cardboard Waste Management Bournemouth

If you own a business, you’re surely aware of how much waste cardboard is generated on a daily basis. In a busy operation, delivery boxes, paperwork, produce packaging, and receipts can all be generated. Bournemouth will have a collection schedule and a wheelie bin container solution to fit your needs, regardless of what kind of cardboard waste your company produces. Our service is both effective and cost-efficient. We’ll collaborate closely with you to ensure you obtain the finest outcomes possible. Call us today on 01202 805 390.

Instead of wasting space in their dumpsters or wheelie bins, several companies realised it was more cost-effective to bale or compact the cardboard. If you also prefer to keep your cardboard waste in bales, we can assist with that too by providing you with compactors that are most suitable for your business. When included as part of a comprehensive waste management system, recycling and baling cardboard can become a source of cutting your company’s waste management costs.

What is Cardboard Waste?

It’s crucial to understand which materials are suitable for paper and card recycling and which should be discarded. Neglecting to do so could result in environmental damage and more costs from your business since an entire batch of cardboard waste could be contaminated and end up in a landfill. The following is a list of eligible cardboard waste to recycle:

  • Corrugated cardboard: Multiple corrugated and flat layers of cardboard or brown paper sheets make up corrugated cardboard. The material for sturdy cardboard boxes is corrugated cardboard. The material is thick, sturdy, and strong, making it ideal for transporting things.
  • Paperboard cardboard: Paperboard, also known as fiberboard, is a recycled cardboard product that resembles conventional paper but is slightly thicker. This grey foldable paperboard is commonly used for cereal boxes and shoe boxes. Containerboard is another name for the material. It’s tough, but it’s more prone to tearing than corrugated cardboard.

What Types of Cardboard Can You Recycle?

Most cardboard, including boxes, plates, tubes, fiberboard, and paperboard, can be recycled. However, grease or oil-contaminated cardboard, such as a pizza box, cannot be recycled into high-quality cardboard. Wet cardboard should not be recycled because it can clog the sorting equipment used in the early stages of the cardboard recycling process. 

A single cardboard fibre can be recycled multiple times by recycling companies and paper mills. However, you can’t recycle cardboard indefinitely since the paper fibres get weaker with each recycling cycle. To strengthen the base material before generating new cardboard, fresh paper fibres were added to the cardboard pulp during the recycling process.

Preparing for the Cardboard Waste Collection Bournemouth

We ask that all paper and cardboard be separated at the source before entering our bins to avoid contamination and that the waste is clean and dry. When preparing cardboard for recycling, your staff should be reminded to remove the tape, polystyrene packing, and other plastics to avoid contamination. We have a large selection of containers to help you get started. If you have a larger facility, a front-end loading container or even a roll-on roll-off or a compactor may be a better option. As always, we’re happy to recommend a combination that works for you.

Our goal is to provide you with the best service possible. We do this by providing a free waste audit in order to understand how your cardboard waste is generated and managed at your facility. After that, we will be able to recommend the most suitable containers for your needs. After you’ve selected containers that suit your needs, we’ll set up a cardboard waste collection plan based on how frequently waste needs to be removed from the premises.
