Recycling cardboard – popularity of material
One of the most well known recycled materials is cardboard. Cardboard has various uses and because of its durability and versatility, cardboard can be recycled into many different kinds of paper products. There are certain cardboard items that should not be recycled such as: pizza boxes due to grease, boxes that are wet, and boxes that have not been emptied prior to recycling.
Recycling cardboard in your own home is simple and easy to do. It can be reused in a variety of ways such as in your garden. Layering cardboard over your soil will allow it to decompose and deter weeds from sprouting from the ground. Cardboard is also a wonderful composting material. It can be combined with grass clippings after mowing the lawn and can also be used to line the compost heap. Another great use of cardboard around your home is to reuse it for your pet. Most animals find it comforting to have the warmth and stability of shredded cardboard. Other creative ways for recycling it can be found on new websites such as Pinterest.com. Creative people have discovered that cardboard is a simple and cheap way to entertain their children by building obstacle courses for them to crawl through or even using cardboard tubes to hold stationary.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), cardboard is the easiest resource to recycle and a majority of it is. Studies show that over 75% of cardboard is indeed recycled. It is important to note the types of cardboard that cannot be recycled. There are two main kinds of cardboard: corrugated and paperboard. Corrugated cardboard is commonly seen in packing boxes that are brown. They consisted of three layers with a wavy middle layer. Paperboard is a simple single layer of cardboard that is usually grey. Paperboard is commonly used in household products like cereal boxes and backing for notebooks. Most of these cardboard products can be easily recycled. However, most collection centers do request that recycled cardboard that is collected be pre-flattened. During the sorting and processing stage of recycling, tape and labels that are left on the cardboard can be removed.
It is important to note that any cardboard that is contaminated with grease cannot be recycled. Cardboard that has been pre-coated with wax in order to make them waterproof is usually not able to be recycled. Juice boxes and milk cartons are widely used examples of cardboard that has been coated with wax. However, some collection centers will take those kinds of cardboard as well.
Recycling cardboard is a simple way to reduce the cutting down of trees which is a becoming a valuable resource in today’s society. Coming up with ways to reuse the cardboard around your home is a great way to avoid it ending up in landfills. Not only does this save resources but it will also save your family money and enable you to use your creativity in reusing a precious resource. Most cities have a way of recycling the cardboard and this information can be easily found by visiting your city’s website or calling the trash and recycling department.
