PAP (non-corrugated paperboard) - 21


The identification codes show which type of material was used to make a product. That means it doesn’t necessarily indicate a product’s recyclability. To check if something is recyclable, either search for the individual item on our A-Z function (opens in a new window), or check on our recycling page (opens in a new window).

Non-corrugated cardboard is used to make lots of common household packaging like cereal boxes or tissue boxes. It can go into your recycling bin at home or you can take it to some of north London's reuse and recycling centres (see below).
