Paper Cartons


City Waste Hauler 

Most waste haulers accept non-coated paper and cardboard cartons in the home recycle bin. However, some may not accept coated paper coffee cups, fast food cups or other waxy or coated food containers. Check with your specific waste hauler as it may differ from city to city. If you live in a multi-family unit or housing, check with your management company for recycling details and instructions.
