What is Cardboard Recycling?

During cardboard recycling, old, worn out, or abandoned cardboard boxes are reprocessed and reused. Paper cartons or cardboards are typically made from heavy-duty paper or thick paper, which is known for its strength and durability. There are many different types of cardboard boxes, including egg cartons, shoe boxes, and boxes for big appliances. Recycling paper cartons, also known as cardboard, can save businesses money on waste disposal.

Whether you run a small or large company, our knowledgeable staff can provide you with great cardboard waste management solutions that are tailored to your specific needs. We’ll collect the cardboard from your location and bring it to one of our recycling centers, where it’ll be sorted and processed for recycling. An exclusive cardboard recycler like us can help you reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill by separating cardboard and general waste streams. In addition to protecting the environment and conserving resources, recycling also creates jobs and reduces pollution. Utilising a cardboard baler instead of chopping up cardboard waste is a better solution to handling cardboard waste. It saves you space and the frequency of the cardboard collection. 

Cardboard Waste Recycling Process Liverpool

As part of the cardboard recycling process, old cardboard is reprocessed and repurposed. Cardboard can be recycled as follows:


The collection process begins at your place of business. We will come to your location and collect your waste, which will then be sent to a recycling facility to begin the recycling process. Different types of cardboard materials should be divided based on what they were used for. For example, waxed or coated cardboard, as well as cardboard that has been used for food packaging, must be stored apart from uncontaminated cardboard.


Arriving at the recycling center, corrugated boxes are sorted based on their material. Cardboard can be classified as corrugated or boxboard. Corrugated cardboard, for example, is mixed with other corrugated cardboard, whereas paperboard is mixed with their counterparts.


Paper fibers from cardboard are broken down into small fragments by shredding. Water and chemicals will be added after sorting and shredding to create a slurry. This process is known as pulping. The slurry is a wet mixture of recycled paper that has been used to produce fresh paper or cardboard.

Filtering and de-ink

De-inking is the process of removing cardboard ink from the slurry in order to purify it further. Plastic, staples, and other foreign materials found in cardboard are removed during this process. They’re separated from the pulp with the use of a centrifuge, which spins the mixture until the foreign material bubbles to the top or sinks to the bottom. The inks are also removed, leaving the pulp absolutely free of anything other than paper fibers.

New paper Making

The pulp is dried and readied for re-use at this step. After drying, the pulp is placed on a conveyor belt and moved through numerous processes to create new cardboard material. Excess water will be removed throughout these subsequent operations, and we will end up with what are known as paper sheets or liner boards, which can be used to produce fresh cardboard material.
