Commercial Cardboard and Office Paper Curbside Recycling
BCSWMD provides curbside collection of cardboard and office paper to businesses located within the City of Columbus. Each location is eligible for pick-up up to 3 times per week. The Commercial Cardboard & Office Paper Program is free of charge.
