Cardboard Recycling – Think inside the box

Cardboard recycling is one of the easiest ways to start recycling and reduce your environmental impact. And it may even save you money.

Recycling Services

Many municipalities, like Vancouver and Calgary, have BANNED cardboard from local landfills. Recycling cardboard saves trees, water, electricity and helps reduce your carbon emissions. You can actually receive money back for large volumes of clean, recyclable cardboard.  

We start with an Urban Impact site visit to determine the best bin size and frequency of pickup.

Here are some of the questions we may ask:

  • Where is most of your cardboard generated?
  • How much cardboard do you produce in a week?
  • Do you want to store collection bins inside or outside?

Customized solutions such as balers or compactors may be recommended for higher volumes. Tonnage reports are provided monthly.

Cool Cardboard Recycling Facts:

Up to 80% of all cardboard in Canada is recycled.

  • Cardboard can be recycled into new cardboard boxes, paper-based plant pots, drywall liner and brown paper products like paper towels.
  • Most of what people call ‘cardboard’ is actually ‘corrugate’ – the material with the fluted, or ridged inner layer.
