Cardboard Recycling

About our cardboard recycling service

Recycling Lives offers bespoke services for cardboard waste recycling. We ensure cardboard is fully recycled and never sent to landfill or used as waste to energy – collecting and recycling thousands of tonnes of cardboard every year for major retailers.

Guaranteeing closed-loop recycling to return recycled cardboard to market
Securing rebates to generate revenues from commodities
Supplying compactors and balers for client’s cardboard disposal on-site
Our tailored services for cardboard collection and recycling include assessing your waste streams, installing equipment for improved operational efficiencies, increasing revenues from commodities and achieving high recycle rates.

Increasing efficiencies

Choose where to recycle your cardboard – whether on-site or at our facilities. We can recommend, install and even train your team to operate bespoke equipment at your sites, to improve efficiencies for cardboard disposal – we have implemented compactors and balers for clients so cardboard recycling can begin on-site. We also manage cardboard collection nationwide, ahead of processing and recycling at our dedicated General Waste site.

We are trusted by major retailers to manage their cardboard recycling. Working with large quantities of waste cardboard allows us to negotiate the very best price for rebates, with access to UK and international markets and reprocessors – we then pass these rebates on to our clients.
