3 Types of Commercial Waste That Can Be Recycled

17th April 2023

Proper waste management is essential for maintaining a healthy and sustainable environment. Commercial waste, if not disposed of properly, can cause significant harm to the environment.

In this article, we will discuss the various types of commercial waste that can be recycled and how their proper disposal can benefit the environment.

Cardboard and paper waste

Recycling these materials helps reduce deforestation and saves energy used in producing new products. By recycling one ton of paper, we can save up to 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, and 3 cubic yards of landfill space.

Plastic waste

Recycling plastic reduces the amount of plastic waste that ends up in our oceans and landfills. Plastic bottles, packaging, and containers can be recycled and turned into new products, such as carpet, clothing, and furniture.

Recycling metals, including steel and aluminium, reduces the need for mining new materials, conserves energy, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling one ton of aluminium cans saves enough energy to power a home for 10 years.

By properly disposing of commercial waste, we can reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, prevent the release of harmful chemicals into the environment, and conserve natural resources. Recycling and reusing commercial waste materials can also help reduce costs and increase revenue for businesses.
