When did we start recycling cardboard?

    The United States’ first major (and modern) recycling center was begun in New York City in 1896. Cardboard boxes as we know them had existed in Britain since 1817 and, while reuse/recycling efforts were made popular during war time, it took almost eighty years before a space designated for recycling, including cardboard recycling, was introduced.
