Even In A Pandemic, Recycling Matters
Lockdowns Lead to Surge in Demand for Paper Products
As the whole world continues to grapple with a major health crisis, the need to recycle has never been more important. The lockdowns have led to a surge in demand for toilet paper, paper towels, and cardboard boxes for packaging and delivery. For this reason, manufacturers are looking for more materials to create the paper and packaging supply for grocery stores, restaurants, essential businesses, and hospitals.
One of the simplest ways to create that much-needed supply is through recycling. The depletion of essential household items has caused an increase in the demand for recyclables like cardboard and paper. That is why it’s really important to properly dispose of our recyclables by leaving them in recycling bins.
Manufacturers can use old magazines, newspapers, documents, and envelopes to produce paper towels, facial tissue, and toilet paper. Boxes intended for home delivery can be made from recycled cardboard.
Fiber recycling also plays a vital role in the supply chain. The process is vital in producing boxes that ship and store essential products during this pandemic.
Companies are also making an effort to convert high-density polyethylene and polypropylene plastics into a post-consumer resin pellet, which is then sold to molders that make a range of products. Among these markets include beauty and personal care, packaging, and major automotive.
Top brands like Unilever and Procter & Gamble are scaling back to manufacturing essential products, which means more demand for natural resin. With the pandemic leading to a rise in the sales of soap, detergent, and other personal cleaning and care items, as well as household cleaning agents, it’s no surprise that the demand for natural resin is higher now.
As for non-recyclable solid waste, this can be removed through waste-to-energy (WTE) operations. The process, which involves converting non-recyclable materials into usable heat, fuel, or electricity, presents a safe method for destroying any viruses that may be found in trashcans. Materials that may contain virulent waste could be forced out toward landfills.
