Paper and Fiber
For the larger boxes, please flatten them in put them in your recycle container. If there is not enough room, you can place them directly next to your container for pickup.
CEREAL BOXES – YES
Cereal boxes, cake mix boxes, cases of pop and similar cardboard items are all recyclable. Remember to remove any plastic bags found inside the box and throw them in the garbage.
WET OR SOILED CARDBOARD – NO
Wet, greasy or food soiled cardboard is not accepted. Contaminated cardboard can also degrade the rest of the “clean” cardboard.
This may come as a surprise, but pizza boxes are not recyclable. While you may finish off a large pizza in no time, the grease from that pizza stays on the box forever, making the cardboard non-recyclable. In fact, greasy pizza boxes can ruin an entire load of clean cardboard if placed in your recycle bin. You can, however, rip off any clean section of the box and recycle it while throwing the grease stained areas in the garbage.
