Questions about cardboard recycling

Is it possible to recycle cardboard boxes at my curbside recycling program?

Due to their high commodity status, cardboard boxes are accepted by most curbside recycling programs. Make sure the boxes are flattened and that any plastic materials inside have been removed.

Is it necessary to remove the tape and labels from the box?

Not at all. During the recycling process, these materials and ink are filtered out.

Corrugated cardboard versus paperboard: what's the difference?

Shipping boxes are officially called corrugated cardboard, but most boxes are called cardboard. Corrugated papers are more difficult to tear and more durable to ship because they are made from fibers that zigzag between brown sheets. Cereal boxes are made of paperboard, which is thinner and less durable. Even though both are called cardboard, these are two different grades of paper.

Is it possible to make money recycling cardboard?

As long as cardboard is separated from other paper, paper mills will buy it in bulk. A partnership with a local mill is a good idea if you work at a business that uses a lot of cardboard, such as a retail store or restaurant. You’re unlikely to find someone who will pay you for recycling five boxes if you’re a consumer.

Is it possible to recycle wet cardboard?

No, Due to the extra weight of water paper mills do not want to pay for wet paper.

Can pizza boxes be recycled?

What is the recycling process for cardboard?

Separating cardboard from other papers, such as office paper and newspapers, is the first step in recycling cardboard. In the pulping machine, water/chemicals are introduced and the cardboard is broken down into fibers. The cardboard is baled and sent to a mill, where it is shredded into small pieces, and then put in a pulping machine where it is decomposed into fibers. As the paper fibers bond together, any ink and tape are removed. To make new products, the fibers are rolled and dried. The majority of corrugated cardboard is recycled into new cardboard; the remainder is downcycled into paperboard and other products.
