5Cs Daily Tip: Cardboard Recycling



Recycling one ton of cardboard saves:

  • 390 kWh of energy
  • 1.1 barrels (46 gallons) of oil
  • 6.6 million Btu's of energy

Cardboard Recycling Tips

  • Prepare cardboard for recycling by removing all other materials in the box such as plastic wrap, polystyrene peanuts and other packing materials.
  • Break down cardboard boxes to save storage space.
  • Try to keep cardboard dry and free from food waste. Cardboard can get wet and still be recycled, but is more difficult to carry due to the added weight of the water.
