CARDBOARDS & OTHER MATERIALS

Cardboard is one of the most common recyclable materials

Over 85% of all products that are sold in the United States are packed in cardboard. Recognizing that cardboard is the single largest component of municipal solid waste around the world, whether it’s an individual small-scale effort or a larger-scale industrial level, it’s a must to incorporate cardboard recycling. There are two types of cardboard considered recyclable: first, the tangled/messy kind which is generally seen in packaging materials and second, the flat cardboard or paperboard.
