Cardboard should be broken down and placed inside the recycling sack and tied! Cardboard left loose next to rubbish will become soiled and wet and unuseable. If it’s too large it can’t be processed at the recycling factory so take large cardboard to the Community Recycling Centre(tip) Find out more here
