Recycle this holiday and you could win with #DeboxingDays!

Again this year we are encouraging you to recycle cardboard during the holidays.

 

Cardboard is easily recyclable and makes a huge difference to the environment and the economy when properly disposed. Recycling cardboard reduces the weight of garbage, which means lower fees charged for landfilling. Cardboard is also a high-value commodity for resale which offsets the cost of operations at the recycling facility.

 

Of course the most important point is that recycling cardboard saves natural resources by using less trees. Households collect many boxes – from toy and technology boxes to clothes and shoe boxes. Take a few minutes to separate ties, tags, plastic wrap and Styrofoam from cardboard and either bundle or bag it for curbside recycling.

 

Put cardboard – bundled or in blue bags – at the curb on your recycling days between Dec. 10 and Jan. 5, take a picture and post it to social media using the hashtag #deboxingdays to be entered in to win a gift card from North Atlantic, plus a years supply of blue bags.
