Recycling one tonne of cardboard saves 46 gallons of oil!
Cardboard is collected in the yellow bag on the household collection service. If you have more than will fit in the bag, you can order an additional yellow bag.
Most newspapers and magazines are made from recycled paper. Think of the millions of newspapers sold every week - they all rely on residents recycling as much as possible.
What paper can I recycle?
- Cereal boxes
- Frozen food boxes
- Pizza boxes
- Tea bag boxes
- Greetings cards
Large cardboard boxes which do not fit in your yellow bag(s) can be left next to your red boxes - but they must be flattened to no larger than 4ft x 4ft. Please note this is only whilst collections are monthly and we have a reduced service due to coronavirus because we are using a larger vehicle compartment. Once our service returns to normal, additional cardboard must be flattened to no larger than 2ft x 2ft.
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).
- Cartons/Tetra Paks e.g. fruit juices and UHT milk cartons.
- Un-flattened cardboard
- Polystyrene or bubble wrap
You can recycle beverage cartons (Tetra Paks) at various bring to sites in the district as we cannot accept these at the kerbside.
Where does it go?
