Cardboard Recycling Tips
Do recycle corrugated cardboard.
Prepare cardboard for recycling by removing any other materials such as plastic wrap, polystyrene peanuts or blocks and other non-cardboard packing materials.
Flatten cardboard as much as possible making sure the boxes fit the width of the container and please avoid overloading the container.
Keep cardboard boxes dry and free from food waste.
Don't recycle wax-coated boxes. Wax coating is used to resist humidity and moisture. This box will repel water. We suggest reusing these types of boxes whenever possible.
If Styrofoam cannot be removed from the cardboard, it cannot be recycled and goes in the trash.
What about removing tape and labels?
You do not need to remove tape or labels. The recycling process for corrugated material is equipped to handle labels and tape, so you can save yourself time and energy by leaving the tape and labels alone.
These are just a few recycling best practices we recommend. Thank you for choosing to recycle!
