Cardboard is loose or baled.
When evaluating a cardboard recycling program there are many
considerations, but of course the primary consideration is
to understand the advantages that apply to your business by
not only removing the cardboard from
waste stream (and thus reducing hauler and landfill fees).
In addition, you should also consider how you are improving
the environmental friendliness of your facility. Depending
upon the amount of cardboard that ends up in the trash, your
business may need to consider changing its waste processing
routines to accommodate an effective recycling program.
As far as our services are concerned, we provide businesses with either an 8yd container
or wire bin depending on the needs of the business for there
cardboard storage. To pickup the cardboard, we have a grapple truck
that grabs the cardboard out of the container we provide. By
using our containers to recycle their cardboard, they would
eliminate that cardboard from the normal waste collection by
the waste hauling company. This reduction should result in
cost savings as the business should be able to reduce the
number of times per week there front load trash containers
are being emptied.
Attaway Recycling provides wasted solutions for schools in
our community. We implemented a recycling program at 3
different schools in our area over the past year. They were
Wilkinson County Middle School, and Oak Hill Middle School.
Attaway Recycling provides the recycling bins and collection

schools to both save money per month in waste removal costs
