If cardboard is recycled properly, we can save trees and reduce the use of landfill space.
On Earth Day, it is important to note how we can do a better job in our recycling endeavors. Many of us think we are doing our part to help the environment but there are important details that many do not follow that thwart these endeavors. Earth Day is a perfect time to educate the public on what we need to do differently to get the most out of our recycling efforts.
Cardboard is a no-brainer as a recycling choice to help the environment. Over half of cardboard collected is used to make new cardboard boxes with others used for cereal boxes, shoeboxes and the like.
In order to use cardboard for recycling, there are a few simple steps that need to be followed:
- remove shipping materials such as bubble wrap and packing peanuts
- take out any plastic bags
- do not put boxes that have food, grease or oils in them such as pizza boxes
Why Are Pizza Boxes Problematic?
Pizza boxes are one of the largest contaminators of cardboard recycling. Although, many pizza boxes are made from recycled cardboard themselves, they cannot be recycled again if there is food, oil or grease in the box. If you want to place your pizza box in your cardboard recycle bin, you must cut away all soiled portions of the box first.
Priority Waste offers commercial customers’ cardboard only recycling. Commercial Recycling Containers are available in the following sizes: 6 cubic yard container or 8 cubic yard container. Contact us to learn more or to reserve your container.
Happy Earth Day from Priority Waste!
We wish you a warm and joyous Easter holiday.
Many situations create a need for the temporary use of a dumpster. These are usually one-time jobs like new construction, a renovation, or cleaning out a home before a move. So how do you choose the best rental service for a temporary dumpster container in Michigan?
Figure Out Your Capacity Needs
The capacity you need will vary from one project to the next. Most waste management companies will list each available container size along with information on what type of job it can accommodate.
Priority Waste’s smallest size is a 10 yard dumpster that can hold up to 2 tons of debris. This is ideal for household cleanouts as well as small renovation projects. The 20 yard container may be a better choice if you will also be throwing away things like carpeting from a large home. There are also 30 and 40 yard dumpsters that are great for large scale and commercial jobs.
Choose a Company You Can Trust
You should feel confident about the waste management company you choose. Look at customer feedback and see what your rental includes. Will they deliver and pick up the container? Are they flexible with scheduling? Do they offer same-day service? And, most importantly, are they reliable?
Make Sure You Have a Space for Your Dumpster
Once you have decided on container size, you should make sure you have room to place it. The rental service will need access to the delivery location. It must be big enough for the dimensions of the dumpster and leave room for the driver to maneuver in and out. If you are working with limited space, you can try a smaller dumpster size that is picked up, emptied, and redelivered. Contact Priority Waste to discuss your dumpster rental needs.
Priority Waste realizes how dangerous construction work can be. Through our Roll Off Container Rental and Roll Off Container Recycling, we work closely and partner with many in the business and unfortunately have heard some very frightening stories. Priority Waste uses bright yellow dumpsters and containers in order to bring attention and enhance safety measures. Your safety is of utmost importance to us. We encourage everyone during National Work Zone Awareness Week and all of the other days of the year to be mindful and careful when near construction zones. People’s lives are at risk. Slow down.
