Recycling Centres?

    Recommended Posts

    Guest WoodMartin

    Just wondering if there are any recycling centres around where we could take a car load of cardboard? Thanks to the good folk at Ikea we have a HUGE pile of flattened cardboard to dispose of after setting up home. We can put it in our recycling bin, but there is sooooo much. We are in Norwood but are happy to go anywhere if it gets it out of the house!! Done much Google searching but can't find anything that looks like what we want.

    Thanks for the info - we did actually look at Ikea but could not see anything... will have another look. Will also have a look at a few schools nearby and check out where to take bottles/cans. Hope to have some carpet space by the end of today!!

    Go in the entrance at Ikea go right, there are slots in the wall one for cardboard and one for plastic. If you look left you can watch the film at the same time!!

    Hi Guy's, if you go to Goodwill Charity warehouse on Cavan Rd, they have a big bin out the front you can put Paper and Cardboard in for free. The recycling company (i think it's Amcor) actually pay Goodwill for any cardboard that gets put in the bin, so in essence you're donating your cardboard to the charity:notworthy:
