  11. Will Canada Fibers provide a separate bin to capture used cardboard?

    When you deal with Canada Fibers, you will not require an individual bin to separate cardboard from other recyclables and waste. Because we have the ability to process mixed materials, using one Canada Fibers bin, rather than two competitor bins, will save you money in hauling fees. By diverting more than 60% of your garbage from landfill, you also save on disposal fees.
