Cardboard Diversion

Cardboard Diversion 

Blue cardboard recycling bins have been placed at several commercial locations throughout the city. 

There is no direct charge to businesses for the servicing or rental of these recycling bins however, each month, commercial customers pay a cardboard recycling fee on their utility bill. This charge helps support the diversion program. 

To qualify for this service you must:

  • Be a commercial business that does not generate enough cardboard to warrant renting a waste container
  • Shared the container with other businesses; the location of the waste container must be accessible to all businesses involved
  • The container must be adequately maintained according to the criteria below

If a commercial customer receives their own personal cardboard recycling bin and can provide proof (invoice/agreement from the disposal company) the charge can be waived from their bill.
