Cardboard (corrugated and boxboard)

Accepted at all local transfer stations in Paper recycling and curbside in Erving, Gill, and Montague. The following types of cardboard are not recyclable: beer or soda cartons (because of the moisture barrier in the cardboard); egg cartons (because the paper fibers are too short to be recycled); and waxed cardboard (because of the coating). The clean portions of a pizza box may be recycled, but any portions that are greasy or have food adhering must be placed in the garbage or brought to municipal composting.
