There are three major types of recycled materials:
- Cardboard, which is known as Old Corrugated Cardboard (OCC)
- Plastic films, usually polyurethane
- Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), which is usually known by the brand name Styrofoam.
USSI has studied hundreds of retailers, and all these studies indicate that the quickest payback comes from recycling EPS because it has the most cost avoidance associated with it. The second quickest payback comes from recycling plastic. But the more likely candidate for you to recycle is cardboard because there is more of it; however, its cost avoidance and value per pound are less than EPS and plastic.
Furniture companies generate more weight in cardboard than any other recyclable. In higher volume situations, when sales exceed $100,000.00, we recommend a conveyored, automatic compacting, automatically sheering and automated tying horizontal baler.Contact Us
