Cardboard

We can only recycle...

All card from around the home, including

  • cardboard boxes (e.g. cereal boxes, dishwasher tablet boxes)
  • corrugated cardboard
  • online delivery boxes and cardboard envelopes (remove all plastic inserts and polystyrene, as well as packing tape)
  • greetings cards without glitter (tear off the glitter section, as well as any badges and batteries. The glitter can't be removed and the recycled card has to be rejected)
  • egg boxes
  • brown paper

We can't recycle...

  • glitter covered greetings cards
  • takeaway coffee cups
  • card stained or dirty with food, grease, paint or dirt (e.g. pizza boxes)
    (once soiled with grease, cardboard can't be recycled because the fibres cannot be separated from the oils during the recycling process)
