May Environmental Tip of the Month

Around Lexington we recycle only CORRUGATED cardboard. Also known as corrugated fiberboard, it consists of a fluted corrugated sheet sandwiched between flat linerboards (see photo above). Other material you may think of as "cardboard," such as cereal boxes or paper towel rolls, are not currently recycled in our area. Your corrugated cardboard may have some tape or labels, but please don't try to recycle cardboard contaminated with food waste, such as used pizza boxes. The food residue messes up the recycling process. Finally, once again, please collapse your boxes so we can fit more in the bins, thank you!
