The Roanoke Recycling & Disposal Solutions plant doesn’t collect these items for recycling. If you put them in the bright blue bin, they will be sent to the landfill AND it will cost you extra money as a taxpayer: In addition to incurring a charge to be carted to the RDS plant, they will also incur a charge to go to the landfill!!!!
Putting them in the trash is no good either because they just contribute to the pile of waste.
Your best option is shipping them to
Tidewater Fiber 1958 Diamond Hill Road Chesapeake, VA 23324
IMPORTANT: 1. Make sure your cartons are empty and dry. 2. If applicable, keep straws in and caps on. 3. If you are going to use the USPS, make sure your box is less than 12”x12”x12” as larger boxes will incur a surcharge. 4. Write “CARTONS” on the front of your package. If you join this action, please comment below and post photos if you have any. Also, share these actions among your contacts. The more we get the word out, the faster we’ll heal our planet!
Thanks to everyone who participates by recycling & spreading the word!
