Cardboard tubes are being discarded by all companies distributing materials from a roll like: tapestry, plastic films, paper
They have a few standard lengths like:1,5m /3,2 m /4m and a diameter of 80/150/240 mm, usually they are made of 6 to 10mm thick compressed cardboard and are surpisingly strong.
This forms an interesting waste stream for building. As is proved in Shigeru Ban’s projects.
general info about building with cardboard:
Some companies have a continues stream off hundreds off similar tubes a week. At the moment they are discarded as paper waste.
