Recycling in Sioux Falls

Recycle that Box!

posted in Recycling Rules by

Many products we buy are packaged in boxes. Most people know you can recycle a cardboard box, but did you know you can also recycle paperboard boxes? What is paperboard, you ask? A common example of paperboard is a cereal box, made with a very thin gray board, also called boxboard or chipboard. Unlike corrugated cardboard, paperboard is made with just one layer, while cardboard is made with three (two flat layers around the middle wavy layer). Paperboard boxes get recycled into paperbacking on roofing shingles, paper towel rolls, and new paperboard.
