Specialty Solid Waste & Recycling, the City of Sunnyvale franchised garbage hauler, provides corrugated cardboard collection service to businesses that generate at least 200 pounds (2 cubic yards) of corrugated cardboard per week. Cardboard must be clean, free of contaminants and flattened before being placed in the recycling bin. To initiate cardboard recycling service, contact Specialty Solid Waste & Recycling.
Businesses may rent bins for corrugated cardboard recycling services at a nominal monthly fee:
- 3 cubic yard bin rental = $21.91
- 6 cubic yard bin rental = $24.74
All collected recyclable materials must be separated by the generator prior to hauling to ensure materials are recycled, not disposed.
Our A-Z Recycling directory provides more information as to how businesses may recycle or dispose a variety of other materials.
