Any kind of cardboard including: boxes, paperboard boxes (i.e. chipboard such as cereal boxes), clean pizza boxes, and toilet paper tubes should be placed in any recycling bin on campus.

Pizza boxes that are dirty, greasy, cheesy should NOT go into recycling, instead please place dirty food boxes in the landfill.
