Is there anywhere in Central or North Austin I can drop off some cardboard and paper for recycling? I have small broken down cardboard boxes, old product manuals, training materials etc.. to recycle. I work for a small nonprofit and we have recycling service but its just office paper.

The city of Austin website links are all broken right now so I figured I would ask you guys.

Don't know how 'north' you consider north Austin; but there are a couple of schools along Duval east of 183 that had recycling dumpsters two years ago. The one at the school closer to 183(Davis Ele.?) took 'any material that tears...cardboard, books, newspaper, etc'. The school just north of Duval on Amherst was primarily paper, IIRC.(Summitt Ele. ?)

Thanks I live in Cedar Park so anything along the way home would work. I know the one on Duval I used to live in that area

Many HEB's in the area have paper and other recycling dumpsters in their parking lots for the public's use.

If you have in-tact and usable boxes, especially standard sized moving boxes, put them on Craig's list as free stuff, and they will be gone in a day - and used by someone else who can avoid buying boxes. Re-using is better than recycling, if they are still re-usable.

Very true...can't tell you how many printer-paper boxes we had at our Atlanta house. The business was happy to get rid of them and we were happy to re-use them. Goes double for moving boxes, as you said.
