Post Date:08/08/2019 11:18 a.m.

Overrun with cardboard that won’t fit in your Curb It! cart? Visit the new free cardboard recycling drop-off located at the City Maintenance Facility, 211 SE Lorenz Drive in Ankeny. recycle container

The City of Ankeny is partnering with Metro Waste Authority to bring this convenient resource closer to home. Simply remove the packing material and flatten the box, then slide the cardboard in the container. The container can be accessed 24/7 and it is conveniently located next to our free mulch and compost site at the Maintenance Facility.

This new cardboard recycling drop-off only accepts corrugated cardboard, the type with waved ridges in the middle. The flat thin stuff, with your favorite soda or cereal inside, is actually paper – not cardboard, so put those in your green Curb It! cart.

Metro Waste Authority wants to help you be a recycling expert. If you’re ever wondering where it should go, check out or call 515-244-0021.
