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.
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.
