At Hurn Recycling we know that cardboard is the largest single constituent of general (or municipal) waste worldwide; 80-90% of material we collect is made up of cardboard.
We provide paper recycling for all sizes of businesses allowing you to effectively and sustainably manage paper waste. We offer a tailored paper and cardboard waste collection and recycling strategy to suit your business needs.
We provide both 660 litre and 1100 litre cardboard and paper recycling bins. Alternatively, we can arrange baled and loose cardboard collections, in case your business does not have space for bins to be stored.
Recycling is essential for environmental sustainability, by recycling paper we reduce deforestation and protect trees. We are also saving a significant amount of water and other natural resources including energy, as the process of recycling paper also requires lower energy consumption.
The world loses almost six million hectares of forest each year to deforestation. In terms of climate change, cutting trees both adds carbon dioxide to the air and removes the ability to absorb existing carbon dioxide.
We will collect your paper and cardboard recycling container at regular times designated by you. Materials should be placed loose in the bins, or cardboard bundles, not in the plastic bags please.
We cater for any size business and offer the following range of bin sizes for cardboard and paper recycling:
If your business does not have the space for a cardboard and paper bin, we can collect bundles of paper and cardboard directly from your premises, get in touch to find out more.
Paper waste can often contain sensitive data. We provide you a secure confidential recycling solution for paper waste. Any sensitive documents containing personal or company information must be shredded in order to protect the data. The shredded paper will then get recycled according to the current UK guidelines.

Paper and cardboard is collected and then separated into types and grades to be recycled. All paper waste needs to be washed in order to remove any impurities such as glue, ink or film. Once washed the paper is mixed with water to create a pulp, which is then pressed, dried and rolled into large thin sheets of recycled paper. You can read about the paper recycling process or watch the video to learn more about how paper and cardboard is recycled.
