Paper & Cardboard Recycling
Cardboard and paper products are some of the most prevalent
materials in the waste stream. In the recycling and waste industry, these products are referred to as “fiber” due to the microscopic fibers that make up the products. This category of recyclable materials includes products such as corrugated cardboard, paperboard, office paper, newspaper and magazines. While each of these materials is easily recyclable, it’s estimated that each year much of it is Landfilled.
Needless to say, there’s a significant opportunity to divert cardboard and paper from being landfilled. In addition to the environmental benefits of recycling paper and cardboard, such as reducing deforestation and habitat destruction, these recycled materials directly support businesses and jobs.
