All paperboard must be flattened and loose (not bundled). Though these are made of recyclable paper, some may be too small to be accurately captured and recycled through our current sorting process. It is best to place paper pieces that are smaller than a 3” x 5” index card in the trash.

This item follows the basic rule for fiber recycling in your bin/cart (it’s paper, cardboard, or a carton). Paper and cardboard must be flat. Cartons must be empty at a minimum, but rinsed whenever possible. Plastic caps (on cartons) can go back onto their plastic spouts.
