I got a tip via a friend of my wife’s that Waste Management’s web site for Northfield shows that their multi-sort recycling at the curb (click right image to enlarge) now includes all kinds of paper products, not just newspapers. ‘Twas news to me.
So this means you no longer have to bring cardboard and miscellaneous scrap paper (“junk mail paper, egg cartons, cereal/cracker/shoe boxes, coupons, wrapping paper, greeting cards”) to the big bins at Econofoods or Cub Foods. Just put it in a paper bag and put it in the bin. Larger cardboard can be flattened and placed under the bin.
And their Northfield drop-off location handles eCycling (electronic waste), too.

Update, 5 pm: Evidently there is NOT curbside recycling for cardboard. The WM website is in error. See the comment thread.
