Recycling Contamination in Commercial Cardboard Containers – What does it all mean?

The recycling industry has changed. Contamination, once allowed by haulers, has ruined the cardboard recycling industry and kept the price of OCC (old corrugated cardboard) under the price per ton levels needed to make it a profitable business. For the last 2 years haulers have tried in many ways to stop the bleeding of profits based on what they can recoup from selling their cardboard. The United States largest hauler is responsible for much of this issue. As the largest seller of cardboard to China there was so much contamination that the Chinese finally said “NO” and demanded much cleaner cardboard. That meant that they now had to process all their cardboard to clean out the contamination. There can be no plastic bags, bottles, Styrofoam, or waxed cardboard. With no one policing the dumpsters you would never see the issues that we, in the waste industry, see on a daily basis.

Packaging Bans – Do they work?

Over the past few months, we have heard a lot about bans on single use plastic and foam items; things like plastic bags, drinking straws, and take out containers.  We have spent some time looking into these bans and whether or not they will actually make an impact on plastic waste.  As of right now, only about 9% of all plastic that has ever been produced has been recycled.
