Cardboard

Cardboard is a bulky material and so we prefer to collect it baled. We collect in bales ranging in size from 50kg to 500kg. If you do not already have a baler, we can supply a range of machines either on an outright purchase or rental basis. In some cases we do collect cardboard in wheeled bins.

Cardboard can be collected as a segregated recycling stream or it can be included in a dry mixed recycling scheme.

Interesting Facts

For every tonne of cardboard recycled the savings are as follows:

  • At least 30,000 litres of water.
  • 3000 4000 KWh electricity (enough for an average three bedroom house for a year)
  • 73% less air pollution than manufacturing new paper.
  • Saves 24 trees.
  • Reduces landfill by 5 cubic metres.
