York cardboard waste removal
Cardboard is one of the most recyclable materials, and there are two main types – paperboard and corrugated cardboard. Paperboard is thin and used to make things like cereal boxes, while corrugated cardboard is stronger and used for packaging materials. We offer cardboard collection and recycling services in York for any type and amount of waste cardboard, such as:
- Shipping boxes
- Packaging – including delivery boxes and cardboard envelopes
- Boxes – such as cereal, egg, and dishwasher tablet boxes
- Greeting cards
- Cardboard tubes – from kitchen and toilet rolls
Different grades of cardboard can be mixed for disposal, just ensure it’s clean and dry before sending it for recycling. Any cardboard with plastic, wax, glitter or other such linings can’t be recycled unless you can separate it first.
How commercial cardboard recycling works in York
Book cardboard recycling in York and we’ll deliver free bins to your organisation anywhere in and around the city. Fill each bin with any type of cardboard waste you produce and within the weight limits for each bin. Then arrange collection on a daily, weekly, or fortnightly basis and we’ll remove them at an agreed time and date.
One of our trucks driven by a licensed waste carrier will come out and collect your cardboard bins. They’ll transport them to a recycling centre in and around York (such as Hazael Court or Towthorpe and Strensall HWRCs). Here the cardboard is often sorted by grade, shredded, pulped, filtered, dried, and rolled out to create new cardboard products.
