Recycling cardboard in Leeds is essential as it’s a highly sustainable material. Households can put clean and dry cardboard in their green recycling bins managed by Leeds City Council. However, there are also more than 32,000 businesses across Leeds and each one must arrange commercial cardboard waste collection to dispose of it responsibly, safely, and legally.
Cardboard recycling for businesses saves on disposal costs and helps the environment. It’s more efficient than a dry mixed recycling bin if your organisation uses lots of cardboard too. At Divert our licensed waste carriers provide reliable cardboard recycling services for organisations across the West Yorkshire capital.

Leeds cardboard waste removal
There are two main cardboard types. Thin cardboard such as paperboard is used for cereal boxes, while stronger corrugated cardboard makes up more durable packaging materials. You can mix cardboard grades together in your bin, just ensure they’re clean and dry. Our Leeds cardboard collection services can recycle both types and waste items including:
- Delivery boxes
- Packaging – takeaway boxes and cardboard envelopes
- Boxes – such as cereal, egg, and dishwasher tablet boxes
- Greeting cards
- Cardboard tubes – from kitchen and toilet rolls

Can I mix cardboard with paper?
You can use a dry mixed recycling bin to combine paper and cardboard products for recycling. It’s also possible to mix thin cardboard and paper in one paper or cardboard bin. However, thicker waste cardboard such as corrugated cardboard must be separated from paper for recycling. When using a cardboard recycling bin just for cardboard there’s no need to separate it by grade.
Can you put cardboard in a household waste bin in Leeds?
You can recycle any type of cardboard in your green recycling bin at home in Leeds. This includes empty cereal boxes, greeting cards, egg boxes, Amazon parcel delivery packaging, corrugated cardboard, and more. Ensure all cardboard is clean and dry, free from other contaminants.
