Cardboard: A Versatile and Sustainable Material

Cardboard, a thick and durable paper-based material, is widely used in the production of boxes and packaging materials. There are two types of cardboard: corrugated and paperboard/chipboard. Corrugated cardboard, with its wavy inner layer, is ideal for shipping and delivery, while paperboard/chipboard, made of a single layer, is commonly used in cereal and shoe boxes. Both types are made from wood fibers sourced from trees and are recyclable, as long as they are not contaminated or wet.

Managing Cardboard Waste for Businesses

While cardboard is a useful and versatile material, it can also be a logistical challenge for businesses. The constant flow of cardboard waste requires proper storage, disposal, and transportation. To minimize the environmental impact and costs associated with managing cardboard waste, companies should consider sustainable solutions, such as recycling.

Benefits of Recycling Cardboard

Corrugated cardboard has a high recycling rate, as its thickness and durability result in long paper fibers. Recycled cardboard can be used to create new packaging materials and boxes, and it can be recycled multiple times without losing its strength. By recycling cardboard, businesses can reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and decrease the number of trees cut down each year.

In addition, recycling cardboard can even generate revenue, by selling it to waste collection companies.
