The category covers all corrugated cardboard that does not carry a recycling fee, i.e. all cut-offs from printing shops and packaging manufacturers, without foreign material.
The cardboard may be printed, plastic coated and with strong colours.
What happens to the material?
The material is compressed and baled at the receiving and sorting plant of SORPA at Gufunes in order to reduce its volume. It is then exported to Sweden for further sorting and recycling.
The recycled cardboard is used to manufacture new corrugated cardboard.
Baled corrugated cardboard > 500 kg/bale in 40 ft. ship container in the greater Reykjavík area or FOB export port as further agreed.
