From refurbishing old telephones to recycling cardboard, the Communications Industry has opportunities to reduce and recycle.  After packaging reduction, double-sided copying, and switching to using reusable supplies, there are still recyclable materials remaining for processing.   Cardboard and shrink wrap are some lucrative recyclable materials from the Communications Industry.  For example, AT&Tsaved more than $1 million by recycling materials such as corrugated boxes, paper, magazines, and newspapers.

Most consumers feel environmentally conscience and 'green' credentials can gain customer-alliance.  A report entitled "Green Values: Consumers and Branding (May 2008)" reports that 70% of consumers are environmentally conscience and 10% are willing to pay a premium to do business with 'green' companies.

On average, the trash profile of Communications Industry is typically 15% Cardboard, 20% paper, 15% plastic, 5% metal, and 45% other materials. Since a large percentage of the trash profile in the Communications Industry is Cardboard and Paper, reading the information regarding Cardboard Recycling may be helpful. 

Using a baler is the most efficient way to recycle cardboard. The Communications Industry regularly has a large volume of cardboard and paper waste.  Containers to collect cardboard can be placed in convenient places throughout offices and manufacturing areas. Using a cardboard baler is easy.  Just open the door, insert the cardboard, close the baler door, press the button to start it and that is all.  Just walk away.  Most balers are fully automated and will complete the whole baling cycle for you.  When your bale is complete, it is ready to be tied off.  You can tie it off and leave it for the recycler to pick up.  Cardboard bales are considered much safer than loose cardboard because tight bales of cardboard have no oxygen inside.  This makes them less of a fire hazard.  In addition, because your cardboard is compacted and baled, you will have it collected much less often.
