Make sure they are not stained or dirty and that all plastic, tape and polystyrene has been removed. Please flatten the box before placing in your bin, bag or box.


  • Most clean cardboard is recyclable.
  • Look out for stains such as grease, food, paint, dirt, etc - please put this contaminated cardboard in your normal residual waste bin.
  • Remember to flatten boxes and remove all packing tape, polystyrene and plastic inserts from cardboard packaging before recycling.
