How commercial cardboard recycling works in Harrogate
Get a free quote tailored to your needs based on the number and size of cardboard bins you need, how often they’ll be collected, and where from in Harrogate. If you’re happy with the price we’ll deliver free bins to your business and book a date and time for collection.
Simply fill each bin with your waste cardboard (both paperboard and corrugated cardboard) and within any weight limits. Move them to the pickup point and one of our purple trucks driven by a licensed waste carrier will come and collect them at the agreed date and time. They’ll take them to a nearby waste transfer station in North Yorkshire.
The cardboard bins will be emptied, the waste sorted and sent for recycling. At the recycling centre, the cardboard is separated by grade and then shredded. Water is added to form a pulp, which is then filtered and dried. It’s then rolled into sheets to form new cardboard and used to make many cardboard products.
