Ever wonder what happens to cardboard that you place into your recycling bin? Ever wonder what all those retail shops do with that cardboard that what comes in? Well, once the boxes are crushed they are sent for recycling, turns out cardboard is truly worth something, and there’s a shortage, most of it ends up in”vacant” freight containers going back to China. The majority of the boxes we get in the mail or delivered are manufactured from recycled material, but not all.
Really, our think tank was talking this long ago, and we did a small experiment to see, one of our members told us that he saw a stamp on one of his cardboard boxes – produced in the united states, and it was virgin cardboard never from recycled material, see we do create something in the US apart from airliners and burgers. I advised our think tank guy;”I am quite happy to see your Virgin Cardboard Box was really made in the united states, as I am confident you’re as well.”
Is there a better way to recycle cardboard which makes it more powerful next-round? What if we add ingredients because it’s broken down during the recycling stage, then through the next recycling stage, it may need a different procedure than present, although if the additional components are broken down, dissolved and precipitated out, such as the clear packaging tape is, during a very similar procedure, then we could win this way.
Still, if updates are necessary, we grab the Chinese off their game, meaning we must process the cardboard from here on out, as they won’t have the amenities yet, and we can send rolls of merchandise back to them at the freight containers as opposed to crushed and bundled cardboard cubes strapped with ties. Imagine if we were to add rubber strands from old tires too recycled?
If the rubber remains evenly distributed in the mulch, not much must be achieved, micro-fine ground sawdust is extremely flammable, but exceptionally abundant around pre-fab elements for building homes, timber yards, furniture factories (sadly few left in the US – NAFTA delivered them to Mexico, today however in Asia). So, sawdust is an abundant substance it sounds. Are not there strict regulations on sawdust in the united states? It would be wonderful for the rubber you mention from used tires, even though that may be tough too as a result of toxins from the melting of rubber + the steel in the steel belted radial tires for advantage – certainly something to take into account.
