Recycling is an essential service, and preserving recycling is as much about the preservation of our economy as it is the environment. OVP Recycling & Pallet Services is dedicated to reducing landfill waste by providing services that focus on sustainable initiatives such as the disposal of cardboard waste.
- In the US, corrugated cardboard boxes are used 90% of the time to ship goods.
- Most of the cardboard waste is generated from large companies, such as warehouses, department stores, and supermarkets.
- Recycling (1) ton of cardboard saves 9 cubic yards of landfill space and 47 gallons of oil.
- Cardboard is biodegradable and safe to dispose of. Recycling cardboard only takes 75% of the energy needed to make new cardboard.
- Not all items manufactured from cardboard material are recyclable e.g. pizza boxes and paper coffee cups. Disposable cardboard should be kept in a closed-top recycling bin or storage unit as wet cardboard cannot be recycled. Moreover, any cardboard containing grease contamination cannot be recycled.
- It is easy to go green with cardboard recycling, you can partner with OVP a commercial waste disposal company to formulate a plan for your business.
