Cardboard and boxes can be recycled at home.
See restrictions and instructions below:
Cardboard, boxes, boxboard
Bloomington Drop-off Facility limit: one pickup truck load of cardboard per visit from households.
Larger quantities of cardboard from households should be delivered to the Brooklyn Park Transfer Station.
During limited operations, residents will be responsible for unloading cardboard recycling. Follow staff directions.
Before your visit, remove all packaging material from cardboard, including Styrofoam and plastic wrap. Styrofoam can go into the garbage. The plastic wrap, if separated first, can be brought in for plastic wrap recycling.
Flatten boxes. Preferred size is 3’ x 3’ or smaller.
Clean delivery pizza boxes may go in recycling in some areas (check with your city recycling or hauler first), and greasy or food-soiled delivery pizza boxes are accepted by organics recycling programs. They may also be put in the garbage.
