How to recycle card and cardboard
The main types of cardboard we find at home are corrugated cardboard (i.e. packing boxes) and the types used for food and drink packaging. Both types are recyclable but councils sometimes collect them separately.
|Yes please||No thanks|
|Cardboard boxes (e.g. cereal boxes, dishwasher tablet boxes)||Card that is stained or dirty with foodstuffs, grease, paint or dirt (e.g. pizza boxes)|
|Corrugated cardboard||Glitter covered greetings cards|
|Online delivery boxes and cardboard envelopes (remove all plastic inserts and polystyrene as well as packing tape)||Food and drink cartons|
|Greetings cards (tear off any glitter, badges and batteries)|
