Big cardboard recycling Geneva

Hi there

Trying to get my head around recycling in Geneva.

After an Ikea binge, I have masses of cardboard to recycle. I mean masses- its currently about 5 foot high and 2 metres long, flat. Is it okay to put cardboard this big out on the street when it comes to cardboard recycling day?

Or is there another option? PS I dont have a car so cannot haul it to a recycling point if there is one...

Thanks in advance!

Just use the rope and turn it into a set of packages they can handle, the two meters long is no problem (not in Zürich at least) and toss it all on the pile when it is collection day.

I live in Onex but I guess the rules are similar. My concierge told me to put the cardboards in the pile the night before the collection day. All boxes opened and folded in order to occupy the least space possible and secured with a rope.
