Management solutions for paper and cardboard waste

You can make a quick environmental impact by streamlining and improving your paper and card waste management.

Separation at Source

For effective recycling, it’s essential that paper and cardboard are separated from other waste streams, especially contaminants like food waste, to maintain their recycling quality. We can include a wide variety of bins solutions tailored to your waste and space footprint.


Larger facilities often need bailing services on-site where cardboard and paper are compacted and bound into bales, making transport more efficient. If this is something that suits your business let use help you find the right equipment to meet your needs.


We have relationships with premier recycling centres nationwide who can collected paper/cardboard and take directly to their recycling facility where it’s sorted by type and grade. Contaminants (like plastic or staples) are removed and the material is pulped, cleaned, and de-inked.
The cleaned pulp is then used to produce new paper or cardboard products.

High-grade papers or large volumes of cardboard can sometimes be sold, generating a potential revenue stream for businesses.

Our approach

Improving your overall environmental impact

We understand the complexities around contamination where materials like food waste, liquids, or non-recyclable items mixed with paper or cardboard can degrade the quality of the recyclable material.

We can work with you to reduce the likelihood of contamination and with proper sorting, collection, and processing, your business can convert its paper and card waste streams into valuable resources – supporting a circular economy and reducing environmental impact.
