Paper and Carton Recycling – Terms to Know

When paper products, milk cartons and cardboard boxes are recycled, it benefits the consumer, the manufacturer and the environment. Companies that specialize in recycled product packaging, including cartons, cans and containers, try to encourage consumers to participate by making the process easier, and perhaps even offering financial compensation for each paper and box turned in. Here are some of the most common terms used in paper and carton recycling.

  • Corrugated – a type of paper cardboard construction consisting of two layers, and usually brown in color. Corrugated cardboard is used to make moving boxes and packaging of heavier products. It is fully recyclable.
  • Box Board – Box board is used to manufacture milk cartons, cereal boxes and other food packaging, it is also recyclable.
  • Non-Recyclable Cardboard – Not every paper container can be recycled. A product that has been coated with wax or comes in contact with food scraps, such as a pizza box, is not eligible for reuse. Dispose of these containers in the trash or a landfill.
  • Shred – A shearing action that reduces the size of paper and cartons, improving the efficiency of the waste management and recycling process.
  • Pulper – A pulper will shred paper and cardboard, while mixing them with water and solvents to aid in the recycle process.
  • Slurry – A term that refers to pulped paper, before it is washed to eliminate contaminants.
  • Biodegradable – a product that will decompose quickly without mechanical assistance.
  • Decomposition – When paper and cartons are disposed of as waste, they decay gradually through a process called decomposition, which can take many years.
  • Waste Management – An industry that focuses on waste removal and recycling. Some companies, such as sanitation pickup services, will only recycle paper and cartons that have been separated from other trash.

    Everyone knows it's important to recycle paper and other reusable waste products. But not everyone knows how they ought to go about doing that! In order to properly recycle, you must first create and manage a recycling program. Anyone with a little free time and a desire to make the world a cleaner, greener place can create and manage one of these programs. To get started, begin collecting paper cartons and other forms of paper waste. Just about every paper product is recyclable. Milk cartons and other beverage containers are recyclable. Cardboard boxes are recyclable. Scrap packaging paper is recyclable. Shredded product paper is recyclable too. Even non-paper products can be recycled. Plastic, cans, and some hazardous materials can, for instance, be recycled as well. Once you have collected all of the products you can begin to box them up. To save space, you may also want to shred some of your paper before you box it. Then, once you have placed them in a bin or a box, you're ready to recycle them. To do this, you can take your recyclables over to a recycling center, where they will be processed and later reused. As soon as you've dropped off your recyclables, you're free to head home again - it's as simple as that! So, the next time someone tries to dispose of a bit of paper or another recyclable product by tossing it into a landfill, stop them. And tell them that starting a home recycling program is simpler and easier than they might think!
