How do I recycle cardboard boxes?

Cardboard is a recyclable item. Cardboard put out as trash will not be thrown away.  If cardboard is not properly cut to approximately 36” x 36” (3 feet by 3 feet) and put near, or with the Green Recycle Bin, the Recycling collector will not accept it either.  Residents are also reminded that cardboard boxes may not be used as a trash container.  Improperly cut cardboard put to the curb or cardboard boxes containing trash will not be collected by the recycling or trash collector. 

Residents are asked to please take the little extra necessary time to properly cut cardboard down to size.  Cutting cardboard down properly not only reduces the amount of garbage we’re throwing away, but also saves your tax dollars, because recycled items are disposed of at the landfill for free!
