Corrugated cardboard - Fold, flatten, or cut corrugated cardboard into bundles no larger than 2' x 2' x 3' and place next to or under your blue bag. It should be secured so that it won’t blow away before collection. Discard packing material and badly stained items with regular garbage.

Large amounts of cardboard should be taken directly to the Henderson County convenience center.
