How to recycle

Cardboard Boxes

In recycling

Cardboard and flattened cardboard boxes go in the recycling.

Next to bin – no charge

Cardboard that doesn't fit can go next to your bin on your recycling day. Bundle and set next to the bin, or put in a box or container next to your bin.

There is no charge for extra recycling.

In food and yard waste

Cardboard with grease or oil stains (like pizza boxes) go in the food and yard waste bin.

Put cardboard that is mostly wet in the food and yard waste bin.

Decrease waste: Choose reusable items or donate to thrift stores.
