For a temporary job I'm working, one of the tasks we are sometimes required to do is to unroll these giant spindells of paper (think rolls of toilet paper the size of a trash bin except the paper is tough) and pack the paper into a box for recycling. The goal, really is to remove the cardboard center piece. The way they've been doing it is to cut through it with a knife. But this is tiring and takes a while.
Is there a more efficient way of doing this? I was thinking about maybe cutting in the middle to try and remove the center piece but it's just in there so tight.
