On Feb. 1st, 2016, City of Calgary increased the rate for commercial vehicle loads of garbage containing paper and cardboard, from $113 to $170 per tonne. That is an over 50% jump. So it is better to recycle your paper and cardboard before hauling them to the landfills.
Did you know shred paper and cardboards make excellent worm bedding? Did you know worms also love to eat the glue in between cardboard layers? That is because glue is made from cornstarch, and therefore, contains nutrients in it.
