NEW Free Cardboard Drop-offs in Dallas County

posted 9/10/2020

Overrun with cardboard?

Visit the new free cardboard drop-offs located in Redfield, Perry, Minburn, or Linden! Simply remove the packing material and flatten the box, then it will slide right in.

Dallas County is partnering with Metro Waste Authority to bring this convenient resource closer to home. Lifestyles have changed and people now have more cardboard at home than ever before. Cardboard that is kept separate from other recycling has a better recycling future, making more boxes! Once mixed, the quality gets downgraded.

The cardboard drop-offs available in Dallas County only accept cardboard, that’s the brown stuff like the smiling boxes from Amazon. Those in the biz call it corrugated, the type with waved ridges in the middle. The flat as a pancake, thin stuff, with your favorite soda or cereal inside, are actually paper – not cardboard.
