Cardboard and paper Recycling
Waste King separate paper and cardboard material from our mixed collections. Without any plastic coating cardboard is ultimately biodegradable and compostable, as long as there isn't exessive ink on it. In its shredded form cardboard can be used for animal bedding and to insulate houses. Cardboard is an excellent material for use in the developing area of waste to energy: creating fuels and power from waste products. It releases twice as much heat per pound of waste compared to other sources, doesn’t release toxic poisons and its only by-product is ash.
