Cardboard Recycling

Industrial Corrugated Recycling

Cardboard cartons, boxes, and trays make up a large portion of transportable goods containers. However, once the products have been unpackaged, the leftover cardboard waste can take up space and get in the way. Quincy Recycle gives you the opportunity not only to eliminate this waste from your sites, but also to get a return from it. Our B2B bulk cardboard recycling programs make it possible for you to:

  • Reduce the amount of garbage you send to landfills
  • Lower your business’ carbon footprint and environmental impact
  • Add a new revenue stream to support your bottom line

We have decades of experience working with cardboard recycling partners across the United States. Our multiple locations across the Midwest, combined with our nationwide trading network, allow us to move loads anywhere across the county. Connections with ports on both coasts make it possible for us to exchange international transshipments. Our national and international capabilities help us transport and process what you give us quickly and effectively.

Benefits of Recycled Corrugated Cardboard

Corrugated cardboard is one of our most industrially recycled cardboard materials. Made from kraft containerboard, corrugated cardboard boxes are primarily created with three or more layers. Their cost-effective and customizable attributes make them ideal packaging material for manufacturers, warehouses, and industrial suppliers.

Quincy Recycle partners with companies to establish safe, effective recycling strategies. As long as the corrugated cardboard is free of protectants or contaminants, such as wax or food products, it is acceptable for recycling or reuse. Our system results in significant cost savings for you and opens the door to new sources of income. Check below for types of industrial cardboard we commonly recycle.
