Paperboard Recycling

Paperboard

Cereal boxes and other food boxes, tissue boxes and the thin packaging boxes that small products like perfume bottles come in are all made from paperboard.

These boxes can be recycled throughout New Jersey but how they are collected depends upon where you live. In some towns you can include paperboard boxes in the mixed paper curbside collection box, whereas other towns request that paperboard boxes are collected together in bundles along with the corrugated cardboard shipping boxes.

Consult your local town recycling website for further details.

If you live in an area that does not currently accept paperboard boxes as a part of your curbside recycling collection, then you can take them to the county municipal recycling center and place them in the designated collection container.

To find your nearest municipal recycling center go to your county recycling website.
