- Large cardboard boxes - must be flattened for collection to 2ft x 2ft, which is the same size as the opening on the vehicle for the cardboard compartment. Please also remove any packaging such as polystyrene, plastic film/wrapping and any plastic straps.
We can only collect clean cardboard (without any food left on it).
- Beverage cartons (Tetra Paks) e.g juice, milks, chopped tomatoes cartons. Please take these to a bring to site in the district.
Where does it go?
We sell cardboard to Smurfit Kappa who take the baled cardboard to their depot in Tamworth, ready to be sent to their Kent or Birmingham mills. 100% of the cardboard sent to these mills is turned into recycled paper reels that go onto corrugators and box makers to be manufactured into new packaging.
Find out more about paper and cardboard recycling, including advice about what to do with shredded paper, envelopes and more.
