There are many different types of cardboard packaging that we see laying around our homes or offices. From corrugated, solid board to custom die cut boxes, we seem to have a lot more around us, especially with internet shopping becoming a popular shopping phenomenon.

But most important factor about cardboard boxes is that they are all recyclable.

Here are a few top tips on how you can do your bit for the planet and recycle your old cardboard boxes.


1) Reduce or Reuse

Large cardboard packaging boxes are perfect to fill if you are moving house, or transferring files from one place to another. Just be sure to use clear labeling to help identify the contents.

Empty cardboard boxes are also perfect to reuse for mailing packages to other people or businesses.

2) Gardening

Believe it or not, cardboard can be used in a number of ways in the garden. You can use the cardboard pieces in the compost heap as it helps to soak up any excess water. It also acts as a good barrier against weeds and other garden pests.

3) Recycle

Find your local cardboard recycle location by visiting the Recycling Locator website.  All you need to do is enter your postcode to see where the nearest recycling center is located. (Always check with your local recycling center to learn which types of cardboard they accept for recycling)



Recycling is simple and doesn’t require much effort, just a little creativity and it can go a long way. It’s always best to get everyone involved in any recycling systems you introduce, whether it’s in the office or at home.
