It’s hard to imagine not recycling cardboard in the household; it plays an important part in ensuring sustainable use of wood as a raw material.

What?

These items belong in the collection

Packaging cardboard, corrugated cardboard and detergent boxes.

These items do not belong in the collection

Paper, aluminium- or plastic-coated cardboard (e.g. Tetra Pak), metals, polystyrene, adhesive tape.

Important

Compressed boxes take up less space – in your carrier bag, the collection container and the lorry.

Where?

Places where you can dispose of cardboard

You can deposit cardboard directly at the collection point in your municipality.

How?

How cardboard is recycled

The process is a closed circle. Cardboard is compressed and mixed with water to form a pulp, which is then cleaned and dried to create a paper paste that is used to make cardboard again.

Did you know?

Clean pizza boxes that have inserts, for example, can also be recycled; however, greasy boxes belong in the general waste.
