 Cardboard boxes


Recycle it

Residents can recycle cardboard in their blue cart or at community recycling depots. Please remove any plastic shrink wrap or covering (on drink flats, for example), flatten the cardboard and fold or cut it into pieces small enough to fit in your blue cart.

If you have too much cardboard to fit in your blue cart, take it to a community recycling depot or store it until the next week.

If you live in an apartment, townhouse or other multi-family complex, cardboard boxes should be accepted in your building's recycling program.

Starting November 1, 2016, we require businesses and organizations to recycle all the materials we do at home, plus scrap metal, clear plastic film (polyethylene) and wood. For more details, please view the recycling requirements for businesses and organizations.
