Cardboard

Last year Bristol sent 9 kilos of cardboard for recycling! As a material, it is so wildly used that collecting and disposing of it correctly is key. Cardboard is used for so many different purposes, be it food and drink cartons, stationary or general packaging as examples. Therefore, it’s likely that your business uses it to some capacity. As long as it is kept dry, your recycled cardboard saves a quarter of the total energy needed to make new cardboard.

If you are a Bristol based business, we can support you and your Cardboard to maximise recycling rates. We can provide you with a range of containers including bins, skips and even onsite compactors for larger volumes. You can see what these containers look like here. Regardless of the space that you have available, we can provide you with a solution.

Our process

Our experienced service teams will deliver your container of choice at a date and time that suits you. Once filled, they will pick it up at a frequency that suits your requirements. Options include, but are not limited to, daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly. We can tailor this collection further if you have special requirements.

What will we do with your cardboard?

Once your cardboard has been collected by our sustainable trucks, it is transported to the local reprocessing plant. On arrival, it is flat packed, baled and compacted. It is then soaked, pulped and repurposed back into cardboard packaging. This can include a range of products from stationary to plant pots!
