We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!
Cardboard recycling is a great program for those businesses who generate quite a bit of cardboard on a regular basis. This service can be done via, small / large dumpsters or compactors. If you are not sure which service would be best for you, give us a call and we will have an account representative come out and evaluate your service. These services are available in front load containers and roll off containers.
In most cases recycling cardboard is a fairly easy process. However, there are a few reasons that cardboard cannot be recycled. Cardboard from pizza boxes and other food containers can be contaminated with grease. When the grease from these products is mixed with water during the slurry process the water and oil can’t mix and the slurry process is ruined. Cardboard containers coated in wax such as juice containers or milk cartons can’t be recycled as well.
