At Re-Source Recycling, we employ advanced recycling technologies and sustainable practices to process cardboard materials efficiently and responsibly. Our cardboard recycling process includes the following steps:

  1. Collection and Sorting: We provide convenient collection services for cardboard waste, gathering materials from businesses, residential areas and industrial facilities. Upon arrival at our facility, the cardboard materials are sorted based on their grade and quality to ensure optimal recycling outcomes.

  3. Shredding and Pulping: The baled cardboard is shredded into small pieces and pulped using water and chemicals to break down the fibers and remove contaminants such as inks, adhesives and coatings.

  4. Screening and Cleaning: The pulped cardboard undergoes screening and cleaning processes to remove debris and impurities, resulting in high-quality pulp suitable for manufacturing new cardboard products.

  5. Reprocessing and Manufacturing: The cleaned cardboard pulp is reprocessed and transformed into new cardboard products, such as packaging materials, paperboard and cardboard boxes, closing the recycling loop and promoting a circular economy.
