 Curbside Recyclable  Other Dropoff Locations  Reuse  Timberline Recycling Center

Cardboard can be included in curbside recycling or delivered to the drop-off locations listed below. Boxes in good shape can be reused. Consider posting boxes on Craigslist and other social media sites for reuse.

It should be flattened before recycling. For curbside recycling, large cardboard should be cut down until it will fit loosely in the curbside bin. For drop-off, very large pieces should be cut to a maximum of 4’ x 4’.

Per a 2013 City ordinance, it is illegal to throw cardboard in the trash in Fort Collins. Non-recyclable cardboard is excluded from this requirement, such as waxed cardboard (used to ship bulk produce), or food-contaminated cardboard (such as heavily soiled/greasy pizza boxes). The non-recyclable cardboard should be composted or landfilled.
