Cardboard Recycling Services

Dumpsters and slant top boxes available for businesses

Many businesses choose to recycle cardboard independently of other materials because having a separate container for  large volumes of items such as shipping boxes is significantly cheaper and more sustainable than disposing of them in a regular dumpster.

GFL offers cardboard recycling dumpster rentals in a range of sizes with a specially designed open side slot to maximize the amount of cardboard contained in your dumpster. We also have slant top boxes available for customers who require a more easily accessible option than the regular box top. Please see our full range of dumpster sizes and styles below.

Please note that this recycling option is for cardboard only, and does not include other commingled recycling materials. If this is not the solution you’re looking for, please view our mixed recycling options.

Cardboard recycling guidelines

Whatever style of dumpster you have, it’s essential that you break down cardboard boxes before recycling them. Large, in-tact boxes cannot be bailed and are considered contamination. Please follow the simple guidelines below to ensure you get the most out of your recycling plan:

  • All boxes must be flattened before recycling. You can leave tape and labels on the box, and we’ll remove them at our facilities.
  • We can’t recycle wet cardboard, so please keep your cardboard dry by immediately placing it in the closed-topped recycling dumpster.
  • Any cardboard with grease contamination can’t be recycled, so avoid putting items like pizza boxes in your dumpster.

Services vary by location. If you have questions regarding specific items that can be collected, please contact your local branch. We’re happy to help.
