Commercial Cardboard Recycling

● Neatly stacked cardboard only (staples, tape and wet cardboard are ok)
What will not be collected:
● Wax boxes (eg. fruit and vegetable boxes or milk cartons)
● Soiled boxes (eg. covered in food, paints or oils)
● Plastic or polystyrene (eg. shopping bags or courier delivery pouches)
To prepare cardboard for collection businesses have been asked to flatten and bundle their cardboard and tie with string or nylon (not wire or cable) or to put flattened cardboard in another cardboard box.
