Got Cardboard?

Posted on December 10, 2020 at 4:34 PM by Mila Susnjar

This year has been challenging and we’ve all seen many changes. One change has been the increase in shopping and deliveries coming to all our homes and the cardboard boxes associated with this. However if you find that you have too much cardboard to fit into your curbside cart, or you live in a condo or apartment where you may not have the option to recycle at home, we’d like to share an option to consider for recycling cardboard.

River Valley Paper Company has cardboard collections bins at various locations – schools, faith-based organizations, libraries, and parks. These bins are available for anyone to use. Visit this URL, type in your zip code and click the button titled “Find by Zip Code.” A map will display with virtual pins and you can see which location is best suited for you.

River Valley is a company located here in Summit County and the cardboard and paper they collect is recycled.

Regardless if you recycle at home or take your cardboard to another location, cardboard should be dry, no food residue, and flattened before you recycle it.
