15. Why can’t you collect all cardboard?

We cannot currently take Tetra Pak containers as they are made up from various materials (paperboard, foil and plastic). These materials are layered and therefore more difficult to separate for recycling. Also we are unable to accept any cardboard that has absorbed food residue because this would cause contamination. All other clean and dry cardboard can be recycled.
