like pizza box / soa package / egg box etc? The rubbish people come take the trash every Thursday in my toen but they don't take the cardboard/bottles, so I need to squeesh them and fold it into the rubbish bin; I always like to ultilize as much as the space in the trash bag so I either have my husband fold it nicely or I burn it in the barrel. What about you?

We usually burn it in the fire place, during the months that we use it. But during the summer when it is warm we take it to the recycling place to be re-cycled.

I always crush cardboard and put it in the recycle bin. I try to be really good about recycling and minimizing the trash I generate. I also recyle all my cans, glass and plastic waste.

i never put card board in a trash bag it just wastes space. i usually just step on it like i step on cans. i make the box flat then i take it a few houses down to a recycling ben. we used to have one but someone stole it. i would hate to steal theirs even though they have 2. its pretty suspicious they have one by there garbage and another right next to there house. and to burn it in a barrel. i don't think thats the best idea maybe you should um gather it up and then recycle it some place.

I tend to drive my cardboard into town to the recycling. Or i use it for camp fire starter in the summer. I keep some boxes for storage. But i also drive my garbage to my parents garbage wagon and we pay 20 dollars for a horse trailer (old trailer) full of garbage to dispose of. it takes a few months for us to fill it. There'[s no rural garbage pickup.
