Cardboard Waste Recycling Process
Cardboard recycling is a simple and straightforward technique. It’s not even close to rocket science. It is not necessary for you to do it yourself. All you have to do is call us and we will come collect the cardboard and transport it to a recycling facility, where it will be processed into new paper or cardboard products.
It’s critical that we develop the practice of recycling cardboard. Rather than tossing your used cardboard in the trash, have it recycled. When the cardboard arrives at the recycling center, they are separated into different categories based on the materials they are composed of. After sorting, the next process is shredding, which is followed by pulping. The cardboard paper fibers are broken down into minute fragments by shredding. After the material has been finely shredded into small pieces, it is combined with water and chemicals to break down the paper fibers, resulting in a slurry.
The pulp is next filtered thoroughly to remove any foreign elements as well as contaminants such as threads, tape, or glue.
The pulp is next passed through a centrifuge-like chamber where impurities such as plastics and metal staples are removed. Plastics float to the top, whereas heavy metal staples sink to the bottom and are then removed.
After being cleaned, the pulp is mixed with new production materials and dried on a flat conveyor belt and heated cylindrical surfaces.
As the pulp dries, it passes through an automated machine that squeezes out excess water and aids in the development of long rolls of solid sheet from the fibres known as linerboards and mediums. To build a new piece of cardboard, the linerboards are bonded together layer by layer.
