Baling out on Landfills

Here at the Zoo, we're working to lessen the load on landfills and preserve our natural resources by compacting and recycling used cardboard. Cardboard can be recycled many times without losing its strength, so recycled cardboard is well suited for a second life in products like packaging materials and boxes. Thanks to our handy cardboard baler at Franklin Park Zoo, we're baling out on landfills!
