The recycling industry is changing. In fact, it has been changing for some time. For many, recycling just doesn’t look the same as it did even four months ago, but here at Quincy Recycle, we’ve been preparing for and driving change for many years.
We are in the business of helping companies keep their recyclable scrap material out of landfills and instead find more sustainable options for their waste. What we do at Quincy Recycle really hasn’t changed too much in recent months, but we have had a unique opportunity to help our vendors and customers explore more creative ways to manage their scrap material.
How is the Recycling Industry changing?
Everyone is living their lives differently right now and the supply and demand balances of recyclable materials have shifted. Take for instance recovered fiber material such as scrap paper and corrugated fiber. We’re spending more and more time at home which means we’re not going to restaurants and sporting events. Those types of places use a lot of products made from recycled scrap material. Think brown paper napkins, paper towels, or even the cardboard boxes those products are shipped in. And, because we’re not going to these places, there is not as much demand for many of these typical “away from home” products.
Many consumers, however, are still committed to buying sustainable products made with recyclable scrap material. So, while the demand for scrap is down, there is still a need. That’s good news for the recycling industry but does pose a unique challenge.
Like consumers, businesses are also still committed to sustainable solutions for their waste streams. But, because the typical outlets and uses for many types of scrap material have changed, companies are left wondering how to manage their waste stream now more than ever. That’s where Quincy Recycle can help.
