Commercial Cardboard Recycling

We offer 4 & 6 yard cardboard recycling containers for our commercial customers. Smaller containers may be available based on site restrictions.

  • Service Frequency
    Cardboard containers can be serviced at a variety of frequencies based on the volume you have. Contact us to request a new container or to get assistance with determining what frequency level you need on your existing container.
  • Set It Out
    Have your container out and accessible on your scheduled service day.
  • Preparation
    Flatten cardboard before placing in the container.

Please note that we cannot accept waxed cardboard, cardboard with plastic liners, or garbage in your cardboard bin.

    • Customize your service options and equipment to meet your needs

Holiday Tree Pickup & Composting

Bring your tree to the Astoria Transfer Station for composting at no charge.  Don’t forget to show your yard debris window cling to prevent being charged for disposal.

As a last resort, set the tree out with your garbage to be thrown away.  Please cut your tree down to less than 5’ and place in your cart if possible.  Extra charges will apply if the tree doesn’t fit completely in the garbage cart with the lid closed.  Fees are generally less than $12, depending on the size of the tree.

Holiday Schedule

Our drivers work all holidays except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Check out the holiday schedule for your service area to view office closures for all holidays.
