Cardboard recycling


Please help by making sure you break down large boxes and flatten all your cardboard before placing into your green bin.  You will be surprised how much space is taken up in your bin and in the collection vehicle by cardboard that's not been flattened. This results in the extra costs of providing additional recycling bins and inefficiencies because the recycling collection vehicles are filling up too quickly with bulky cardboard.
