What is Cardboard Recycling?

Corrugated cardboard, often referred to as cardboard, is a recyclable material that businesses recycle to reduce their waste disposal costs. Recycling cardboard is the process of reprocessing, recycling, and reusing heavier papers that have been discarded, abandoned, or considered garbage. As a result of recycling, we not only protect the environment by reducing pollution, but also conserve resources and create jobs. Recycling cardboard can protect the environment and keep it clean.

The following steps explain how cardboard can be recycled.

Cardboard Waste Recycling Process

Collection: To recycle cardboard, we must first collect it. The collection time and pickup point is all up to you, we will dance to your tune. Collection is followed by measurement and transport to our recycling facilities. Depending on how they were used or made, certain types of cardboard can be recycled, while others are not.

Sorting: When the corrugated boxes arrive at the recycling center, they are separated into different categories based on the materials they are composed of. Corrugated cardboard and boxboard are the most common classifications. Thin boxboards, such as those used for cardboard drink containers or cereal boxes, are called boxboards.

Corrugated boxes are rigid and larger boxes that are often used for packaging and transporting products. Sorting is necessary in recycling centres, since they produce different grades of materials based on the recovered items.

Pulping:  After sorting, the next process is shredding, which is followed by pulping. The cardboard paper fibers are broken down into minute fragments by shredding. After the material has been finely shredded into small pieces, it is combined with water and chemicals to break down the paper fibers, resulting in a slurry. Pulping is the word for this procedure. The pulped material is then mixed with additional pulp, usually made from wood chips, to assist the final product solidify and become harder.

Filtering and de-inking:  The pulp is next filtered thoroughly to remove any foreign elements as well as contaminants such as threads, tape, or glue.

The pulp is next passed through a centrifuge-like chamber where impurities such as plastics and metal staples are removed. Plastics float to the top, whereas heavy metal staples sink to the bottom and are then removed.

De-inking entails placing the pulp in a flotation device that uses chemicals to remove any dyes or ink through a succession of filtering and screening steps. This stage is also known as the cleaning process since it completely cleans the pulp to guarantee that it is ready for use.

New Cardboard Making: The cleaned pulp is combined with new production materials at this stage, after which it is dried on a flat conveyor belt and heated cylindrical surfaces.

As the pulp dries, it passes through an automated machine that squeezes out excess water and aids in the development of long rolls of solid sheet from the fibres known as linerboards and mediums. To build a new piece of cardboard, the linerboards are bonded together layer by layer.
