Paper, Plastic & Other2018-09-13T15:58:54+00:00

While scrap metal tends to be the most common thought when it comes to industrial and commercial recycling, many other materials can be recycled as well on a larger scale. Most communities provide great recycling programs for common materials such as paper, plastics, and others but when it comes to amounts in more significant quantities, not many businesses have an answer to turn to.







E Waste

Consolidated Resources, Inc. has been serving the Phoenix and surrounding cities for nearly 30 years. Not only do we handle recyclable metals but we also deal with other materials that businesses may generate as well. Items we handle include:

Cardboard is one of the most commonly recycled items, residential or commercial and that is because over 90% of all products shipped in the United States are packaged in cardboard. The total square footage of all the cardboard packaging totals more than 400 billion square feet.


Did you know that enough paper is thrown away each year to build a 12-foot high wall from New York to Seattle? That is over 1 billion trees worth of paper, every year. Recycling paper has one of the highest success rates, but still, there is lots of room for improvement, especially in the commercial and industrial sector.


When it comes to recyclable materials, plastics take the prize for being the largest and most harmful culprit. Unlike other materials, plastics retain no properties or characteristics of the natural materials that are used to produce them. If plastics are thrown away to landfills rather than recycling them, they can take up to 500 years to decompose. While plastic bottles and bags make up a large percentage of unrecycled plastics, there is still a large amount from the commercial and industrial sector that goes unrecycled.


When it comes to industrial and commercial business, wood recycling may not come into thought as frequently as scrap metal or plastics but it comes into the picture quite often. What does your business do with broken or worn out pallets? Does your manufacturing company produce large amounts of wood particles, pieces or scrap lumber? Wood may not get the most publicity in the recycling world but handling it properly can make a difference overall.


While some recyclable materials lose quality or purity when recycled, glass, however, is one such material that can be recycled endlessly without any degradation. This characteristic of glass makes it a desirable recyclable because utilizing recycled glass in production is much cheaper than using raw materials.
