Cardboard

We offer a variety of cardboard recycling alternatives. We collect large or small volumes of loose, bundled and baled cardboard…once a day, once a week, once a month, whenever you need it.

• Small and medium size generators save money by paying lower costs than regular trash removal.

• Large generators may receive free service, or even qualify for payments (or rebates) for cardboard removed.

 

Frequently asked questions about cardboard recycling:

Q: Do I have to flatten the boxes for recycling?
A: We suggest they are flattened and stuffed inside a large box for loose pickups, or flattened before being placed into dumpsters. Flattening boxes saves space in your recycling containers allowing for more recycling.

Q: Can I recycle cardboard with tape or staples on it?
A: Yes.

Q: Do I have to tie up my cardboard with rope or twine?
A: No.

Q: Can I include waxed cardboard in my cardboard recycling?
A: No. However, there is a new brand of “waxed” cardboard that is recyclable with cardboard. Currently, waxed cardboard can only be composted.

Q: Where do the materials go and what do they get made into?
A: Cardboard is sent to national and international mills. Cardboard is primarily remade into new cardboard containers.
