Simply Green Tip of the Month ‚Äì Unlimited Cardboard, Paper, & Paperboard RecyclingPosted
Cardboard comes in all shapes and sizes. We ask all of our customers to please flatten and bundle their cardboard before sitting it out for our team members to collect.
Most people think of shipping boxes when they hear the word “cardboard.” However, cardboard is so much more than just boxes!
For example, the cardboard found on the inside of paper towel and toilet paper rolls is recyclable. The cardboard packaging that your garbage bags comes in, the cardboard around your new golf balls, the cardboard around your new tube of tooth paste, and even tissue boxes, are all considered CARDBOARD!
Aside from cardboard, Penn Waste accepts paperboard and paper products as part of the recyclables we collect. For example, junk mail, newspapers, magazines, newspaper inserts, and envelopes are all considered recyclables.
Recyclables are no longer just aluminum cans and plastic soda bottles. For a full list of what Penn Waste does and does not accept, please check out our recycle guidelines!
