Corrugated cardboard is defined as “two pieces of heavy paper (usually brown) with a wavy layer in between them.” It is a mandatory recyclable item and must be placed at the curb.
The following is how to recycle specific kinds of cardboard:
- Cardboard should be flattened and placed within the recycling container or the flattened pieces may be contained in one larger box.
- Used pizza boxes are considered dirty and should be broken down and put in regular garbage bags.
- Boxboard (such as cereal boxes, soda cartons, food boxes and most shoe boxes) is accepted as a Board of Public Utilities (BPU) recyclable.
