Excess Cardboard Reminder.

 Excess Cardboard Reminder ♻️

An increase in online shopping for the holiday season leads to an influx of cardboard boxes! Please remember when recycling your cardboard…

All cardboard must be flattened and cut into 2’x2’ pieces before being recycled. Unflattened cardboard can get stuck while your cart is being emptied into the truck, causing incomplete collection.

Any cardboard that does not fit in your cart with the lid fully closed should be broken down, wrapped with tape (no string please!), and placed on top of your cart. Flattened cardboard can also be placed in an unflattened cardboard box outside of the cart, as long as that box is less than 2’x2’ in size.

Keep in mind that recyclables must remain clean and dry, so please avoid placing excess cardboard out in the rain.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Solid Waste & Recycling Coordinator at DDIS-508-832-7703 with any questions. Thank you for doing your part and recycling smart! Happy Holidays!
