A-Z Recycling Guide -- Boxes
Nearly all paper products designed for freezer storage are plastic-coated and are therefore not recycable. Please do not place in curbside recycling or drop of center locations.
Residents and businesses with single-stream recycling can recycle cardboard boxes through their curbside recycling. Learn more about single-stream recycling.
The following drop-off centers accept cardboard for recycling. Please flatten boxes. Click on the site for the location and hours:
