It pays off to keep paper and cardboard segregated for recycling since the collection charges are usually significantly lower than for mixed recycling or general waste collections.

Can all cardboard waste be recycled?

Yes, so long as it’s not contaminated.

Why can’t I burn cardboard waste?

Burning cardboard isn’t an appropriate method of disposal. Burning cardboard produces CO2, a key greenhouse gas, which drives climate change. Also burning it removes the opportunity for it to be recycled into new cardboard, which would help save the world’s resources.

How many times can cardboard be recycled?

Paper and cardboard can be recycled up to seven times which helps save on raw materials, water and energy to produce new cardboard.
