Boxes that aren’t fully flattened are much more difficult to transport and present problems for mechanism in the cardboard recycling processes. Please follow the steps below to ensure proper pickup of your card board boxes.


  • Flatten and bundle all corrugated card board boxes ~ around 3’ x 3’

  • Keep cardboard dry and free from food waste. Cardboard can get wet and still be recycled, but is more difficult to carry due to the added weight of the water.

  • Ideally, the bundled cardboard should be broken down to fit in your recycle can. If not, make a 3’ x 3’ tied up bundle and place it next to your cans.
