Cardboard waste is paper packaging, cardboard and paperboard. In the cardboard waste you can add milk and juice cartons, packages from e.g. breakfast cereals and oatmeal, paper bags, egg cartons, pizza cartons, empty household and toilet paper rolls, corrugated cardboard, etc.
What should I be aware of?
The packaging should be clean and dry. Staples or tape do not need to be removed, but it is important to flatten the packaging before leaving it for recycling. In this way, more cardboard can be accommodated in the container, which means that the emptying truck won’t have to run as often and we protect the environment. Remove plastic corks and put them in the plastic collection (or as combustible waste).
Where can I sort cardboard?
Anyone can sort cardboard and bring it to an ecopoint. Cardboard can also be collected at a property if you ordered the service via a transport company.
What happens to the cardboard?
Collected cardboard becomes a new raw material in the manufacture of e.g. corrugated cardboard, packaging, envelopes and covers.
