Top 10 Corrugated Plastic Recycling Tips for Businesses


Hey there, savvy business owner! Recycling is more than just a buzzword; it’s a responsibility we all share, especially when it comes to sustainable materials like corrugated plastic. I’m the sales manager at COROPAK, and today, I’m going to share some top-notch tips to help you and your business recycle corrugated plastic like a pro.

1. Understand the Material

First things first, know your corrugated plastic. It’s typically made from polypropylene, a versatile and durable material. This makes it a prime candidate for recycling. Familiarize yourself with the properties and recycling codes associated with it. Trust me, this knowledge is the foundation of effective recycling​​​​.

2. Segregate at Source

One of the easiest ways to ensure effective recycling is to segregate corrugated plastic waste right at the source. Set up separate bins in your facility specifically for corrugated plastic. This step not only streamlines the recycling process but also prevents contamination​​.

3. Clean Your Plastic

Cleanliness is next to recyclability. Make sure to clean the corrugated plastic sheets before recycling. Remove any adhesives, labels, or contaminants. This makes the recycling process smoother and more efficient​​.

4. Flatten Sheets for Efficient Storage

Space is money, folks. Flattening your corrugated plastic sheets can save significant storage space. This not only makes handling easier but also reduces transportation costs when you send these materials to recycling facilities​​.

5. Partner with a Reliable Recycler

Not all recyclers handle corrugated plastic. Find a reliable recycling partner who specializes in polypropylene. This ensures that your materials are processed correctly and efficiently. Check for local recyclers or specialized companies that deal with industrial plastics​​​​.

6. Educate Your Team

Your team plays a crucial role in your recycling efforts. Conduct regular training sessions to educate your employees about the importance of recycling and how to handle corrugated plastic waste. A well-informed team is a cornerstone of a successful recycling program​​.

7. Leverage Technology

There are several technological solutions available that can help streamline your recycling process. Use apps and software to track waste, schedule pick-ups, and monitor the efficiency of your recycling efforts. Embracing technology can make your recycling process much more effective and transparent​​.

8. Reuse Before You Recycle

Before sending your corrugated plastic off to be recycled, think about how it can be reused. These sheets can often be repurposed for other projects within your business. This not only extends the life of the material but also saves money and resources​​​​.

9. Create a Recycling Policy

Establish a formal recycling policy for your business. This policy should outline the procedures for recycling corrugated plastic, including cleaning, storage, and disposal methods. Make sure this policy is communicated clearly to all employees and stakeholders​​.

10. Promote Your Efforts

Don’t be shy about your recycling efforts. Promote them! Share your success stories and recycling practices on your website, social media, and marketing materials. This not only boosts your brand’s image but also encourages others to follow suit​​.

Personal Experience and Tips

Here at COROPAK, we’ve implemented all these tips and seen tremendous success. For example, we partnered with a local recycler who specializes in polypropylene. This partnership has significantly reduced our waste disposal costs. We also hold quarterly training sessions to keep our team updated on best practices.

One memorable instance was when we repurposed corrugated plastic sheets for temporary partitions during a facility renovation. Not only did this save us money, but it also showcased the versatility of corrugated plastic to our team and clients.

Another pro tip: always stay updated with the latest recycling regulations and technologies. Recycling is an evolving field, and staying ahead of the curve can give you a competitive edge.

Final Thoughts

Recycling corrugated plastic isn’t just good for the environment; it’s good for your business. By following these tips, you’ll not only reduce your ecological footprint but also enhance your brand’s reputation and operational efficiency.
