Rigid Cardboard Tubes and Corners

Rigid Cardboard Tubes and Corners

Rigid cardboard tubes (like those used for concrete or carpet) and rigid cardboard corner pieces (like those used as corner protection in shipping) are not recyclable and should be thrown away in the trash.

These types of cardboard are filled with a large amount of glue making them too rigid to bend easily.
