Recycling Cardboard

The refuse trucks are struggling to crush large pieces of cardboard and boxes effectively . This takes up a lot of space and reduces the amount of waste the truck can hold – resulting in the crew either making two trips to the recycling site, or putting it in landfill. So, the City Council is requesting the following:

  • Cut up your cardboard

    Please make sure that individual pieces of cardboard are no larger than 60 cm long on any side – about the length of your arm. These can then be bundled flat for collection.

    The refuse collectors will be putting stickers on large pieces of cardboard they canā€™t take, asking you to break it down for the next collection. For more details about this, visit www.canterbury.gov.uk/cardboard.

  • If your cardboard is business waste, visit commercial waste for details on how to dispose of it properly.
