Reuse or Recycle Cardboard Boxes

These instructions are for corrugated cardboard (with a wavy inner layer) only.


​Recycle in your curbside cart or drop off large boxes at a recycling facility.

  • Remove plastic packaging from box and discard
  • OK to leave tape, labels and staples on box
  • Flatten and recycle clean, dry boxes
Recyclables go in recycle bins loosely, without bagging.

Gently used moving boxes can be given away on Craigslist, Facebook, or Nextdoor.

U-Haul has a “Take a Box, Leave a Box” bin at all U-Haul stores. People can bring in gently used boxes to leave for others and customers can also take those boxes for their use.
