Paper & Cardboard

Recycling Preparation

Please remove all food residues and put soiled paper in your regular trash. Cardboard should be cut into pieces small enough to prevent it from becoming lodged in the cart, trapping, and preventing the materials from being emptied. If you have excessive cardboard, please leave it next to your recycling cart and call 508-532-6001 to schedule a pick up.
