Paperboard - Paper & Cardboard



Yes, Paperboard will be accepted in curbside single stream recycling programs, and at community single stream recycling drop-off locations.

If your community does not offer curbside pick-up, a list of community single stream recycling drop-off locations can be found here.

Make sure paperboard is clean and dry and that all food has been removed to avoid contamination, as sorting and processing machinery can be damaged by soiled materials. If you are in the market to buy paperboard, look for 100  percent post-consumer recycled content.
