Cardboard Recycling Program Coming Fall 2021 to Richmond!!!
The City of Richmond Sanitary District (RSD) has been awarded monies to pilot a curbside cardboard recycling program for residents of the City of Richmond. Curbside cardboard recycling requires:
- Distribution of separate specialized (96 gal) recycling container;
- Automated trash truck purchase; and,
- The development of route(s) to collect cardboard for recycling;
- Participating residents must break down brown corrugated cardboard boxes to no larger than 22” X 22” X 36”.
- 2,000 containers available for 2021
- Larger cardboard pieces (television, appliances, etc.) that are not broken down will continue to be accepted at the New Paris Pike landfill at the cardboard bin to be recycled.
- Please remove all packing materials; Styrofoam to green Rosie Roller; Plastic film/bags to stores that recycle plastic grocery bags (Needlers, Meijer, Kroger, Walmart)
