Waste Material That Can Make You A Millionaire (Recycling And Repackaging Of Cartons).

Good day Sir's and ma's, If you're opportuned to read this article today, then thank your creator because, you will soon become a young millionare in a couple of days to this time. Just be grateful because after reading this, you will no longer be throwing away your used or waste Cartons anymore.

I recently learnt about some useful Beneficial of waste Cartons, and This has been interesting for me because am not the type that usually waste left over that comes out of what I used my money to buy, i make sure it useful in one way or the other.

Now, See how you can easily get your money from waste cartons ;

. After using whatever is in your carton drop the waste together in a place and pile it together till it's very bulky.

. Then, you call for any of the environmental services to check and buy, because they would also take it also to the recycling factory for further recycling and finally package they want to.

Your already piled up cartons will be weighed, and your money will be paid base on the kilo as at that process.

Now situation whereby you are in charge of getting all this piled cartons from several places and you want to sell directly to recycling factory ,then this is how your money will be calculated below;

Calculating the amount of waste subject to the levy:

What do I pay the levy on? 

The levy is set at a rate of $10 per tonne (excluding GST), and is payable on the net tonnage of waste disposed of at a waste disposal facility. Even if only part of the material is household waste, the levy is payable on all waste disposed of at a disposal facility. 

How do I calculate the net tonnage? 

The net tonnage is simply the ‘gross tonnage’ less the ‘diverted tonnage’. Note that diverted tonnage must only include waste or diverted material that has previously been measured as part of the gross tonnage. 

Formula 1: Net tonnage


How do I calculate the gross tonnage? 

The gross tonnage is the total tonnage that enters the disposal facility – both waste and diverted tonnage (that is, diverted material that is weighed as part of gross tonnage on entering the facility).

If there is a compliant and functioning weighbridge at the disposal facility, you must use it to measure gross tonnage, unless you have approval to use an average tonnage system (average weight per vehicle) method. 

If the facility does not have a weighbridge, you can: 

. use a compliant weighbridge located off site, or measure the volume of waste and diverted material arriving at the facility and use an approved conversion factor to convert the volume to equivalent tonnage.

If you have access to a compliant weighbridge (on or off site), you can apply to use an average tonnage system for light vehicles and trailers, using an approved method. You can also apply for approval to use an average weight method based on assessment of the volume and use of conversion factors.

Operators approved to submit annual returns can use alternative methods of assessing tonnage.

How do I calculate the diverted tonnage? 

The diverted tonnage is the tonnage of material that is reused or recycled at the disposal facility, or removed from the disposal facility within six months. The Secretary for the Environment can agree in writing to extend this timeframe.

You can only include material in your diverted tonnage figure if you previously recorded the material as gross tonnage. 

Note that ;diverted tonnage includes material removed from the site for treatment or disposal elsewhere. 

Diverted tonnage must be weighed using a compliant weighbridge, or a conversion factor must be used to convert the measured or estimated volume into weight. 

Does the levy apply to liquid waste? 

Yes – gross tonnage applies to both liquid and solid waste or material. It is based on the weight of waste or material in the vehicle or container at the time it is weighed at a disposal facility, irrespective of whether it is liquid or solid waste. 

Do I have to weigh loads of diverted materials arriving at the site? 

No – you don’t have to weigh waste or diverted material if it is immediately separated out for reuse, recycling or removal after entering the facility – as long as it would have been measured as diverted tonnage and has not been included as part of your gross and diverted tonnage figures in your monthly return. This provision applies where material is delivered to a separate drop-off area at the facility and then re-used or recycled without being weighed in to the landfill. For example, used clothing bins or a drop off area for saleable goods located ‘at the facility’, but before the weighbridge.

See Valuable products that can be made from recycling of Cartons:

Once a Carton, Now Something New

Recyclables can be used to make a variety of different products. Since cartons are made with high-quality paper, they can become different consumer products like tissue, office papers, paper towels, and building materials.

You can also check out how recycling of waste Cartons or papers is being carried out in the recycling factory:

Beverages cartons can also be recycled and Repackage. See examples of beverages cartons below and infrastructure used in repackaging them;
