Flattening and breaking down boxes helps you fit more recyclable items in your blue cart and helps the City of Garland Environmental Waste Services Department to collect your recyclables efficiently and safely.
Cardboard boxes that aren’t flat or broken down take up a lot of space in a recycling cart and in the recycling collection truck. Bulky boxes create voids and air spaces, which ultimately increases the number of pickups required and lowers the efficiency of the recycling center.
