Cardboard Recycling

Cardboard recycling is one of the easiest ways to start recycling and reduce your environmental impact. A dedicated cardboard recycling service helps save money on waste management. Cardboard is made of a strong fibre that allows it to be recycled over and over. Urban Impact provides a complete cardboard recycling solution that solves all your paper and cardboard needs. When we set up your custom recycling solution, we ensure the bins are the right size and the service frequency meets your needs. We provide training materials for your staff and clear signage to support your diversion efforts.

Why Cardboard Recycling is Important

Many municipalities, like Vancouver, have banned cardboard from local landfills. This means that loads delivered to a landfill with large amounts of cardboard in them will be fined. Recycling cardboard saves trees, water, electricity and helps reduce your carbon emissions.

Recycling large volumes of clean and recyclable bulk cardboard can receive a rebate. Many businesses, such as, commercial printers, packaging companies and office buildings find our cardboard recycling solution convenient, affordable and saves money.
