Waste Management Industry

Cardboard Recycling Collection and Rebates

If you produce a large quantity of cardboard or bale your cardboard, we can offer you the best rebate rates for your recycled materials.

Cardboard is a commodity that’s subject to the variations in the global market, and affected by the global supply and demand of manufactured products.

It is important to ensure that you keep abreast of these market movements to optimise the best value for your materials.

NRC Business Waste offers monthly pricing for these materials and can organise the collection of loose or baled materials. We’ll use large containers for loose materials, compactors or baled material in full arctic loads for maximum value on return.

What happens to my recycled cardboard waste?

The good news is that cardboard is one of the easiest materials to recycle. After it’s collected, the general process involves:

  1. Source segregation – cardboard is separated from other materials before collection to keep it clean and free from contamination.
  2. Quality management – before being baled for transport, the cardboard is checked for contaminants (like food, glass or other materials) at a recycling facility.
  3. Processing to pulp – the cardboard is taken to a papermill where it is mixed with water to form a pulp. Any leftover contaminants, like staples or glue, can then be removed.
  4. Making new paper – the pulp is then pressed and dried, before being wound into large reels of paper
  5. Paper to cardboard – the large reels are cut down and taken to packaging plants where they are turned into new cardboard. Here, a corrugator is used to fuse together layers of paper – usually a top and bottom piece, with corrugated cardboard sheets in the middle.

If you produce cardboard waste that is clean and uncontaminated then NRC Business Waste ensures this is 100% recycled.

We are fully dedicated to doing our bit for the environment. That’s why we ensure 99% of the waste we collect avoids landfill sites. With 43% being recycled and 56% being converted into green energy, when you choose NRC Business Waste, you choose a cardboard waste management specialist that genuinely cares.

Why is cardboard waste management important?

Cardboard waste management is important because cardboard is a valuable resource that can be recycled and reused. Recycling cardboard helps to conserve natural resources, reduce pollution, and save energy. Cardboard waste that is not properly managed can end up in landfills, where it can decompose and release methane, a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

What are the different types of cardboard waste?

There are two main types of cardboard waste: corrugated and non-corrugated. Corrugated cardboard is the type of cardboard that is used for shipping boxes. It is made up of three layers of paper, with a fluted layer in the middle that gives it strength. Non-corrugated cardboard is the type of cardboard that is used for cereal boxes, shoe boxes, and other types of packaging. NRC manages all types of cardboard and recycles 100% of them all.
