Cardboard Recycling: Paving the Way for a Greener Future
In a world growing more and more focused on sustainability and the need for environmental responsibility cannot be overstated. Recycling not only conserves valuable resources but also plays an integral role in the reduction of waste in landfills. As we dive into the world of cardboard recycling, a new challenge arises; the vulnerability of cardboard to moisture and just how this can be prevented.
This blog will explain the significance of this issue, unpack its impact on the recycling process, and present solutions through the services offered by CheckSammy.
So What’s the Big Deal with Wet Cardboard?
Wet cardboard, while seemingly harmless, is a recycling nightmare. It is a little-known fact that the absorption of water compromises the structural integrity of cardboard, and this makes it unsuitable for recycling.
Therefore, when wet cardboard enters recycling facilities, it creates a production backlog, as well as increased operational costs and even environmental setbacks, and sometimes even dreaded damage to equipment. Instead of being recycled, wet cardboard often finds itself sent to landfill disposal. This contradicts the very purpose of sustainable waste management, which, in part, is to divert the amount of waste destined for an incapacitated landfill.
