corrugated cardboard

Welcome to the waste directory  - corrugated cardboard

What can be recycled?

At South Kensington Campus, where large volumes of cardboard are produced (such as by catering operations and at loading bays or goods in) we aim to collect and bale the cardboard to reduce its volume to ensure that there is adequate capacity in the paper and card waste stream.

Flattened cardboard boxes and cardboard packaging can be placed in this waste stream.
