Paperboard Boxes

Accepted in City of Omaha Recycling

PC Paperboard Cereal Box

Place empty paperboard boxes like cereal, cracker, or detergent boxes in a curbside recycling cart or drop-off site container.

  • Break apart and flatten boxes
  • Labels and tape can stay on
  • Printed, glossy paperboard is ok
  • Discard any non-paper contents, including: leftover food, foam or plastic inserts, and metal pour spouts or strips
  • Only clean and dry cardboard - if wet or soiled, discard in garbage
  • Keep items loose and DO NOT bag

Tip: If the paper box is smaller than 3," place it inside a larger paper envelope that you plan to recycle.
