Cut up your cardboard

Our refuse trucks are struggling to effectively crush large pieces of cardboard and boxes.

This takes up a lot of space and reduces the amount of waste the truck can hold - resulting in the crew either making two trips to the recycling site, or putting it in landfill. 

We're asking you to make sure that individual pieces of cardboard are no bigger than 60cm x 60cm. These can then be bundled flat for collection.

We'll be putting stickers on large pieces of cardboard we can’t take, asking you to break it down for the next collection.

If your cardboard is business waste, visit commercial waste for details on how to dispose of it properly.
