Yes we can.

It looks like Phoenix Recycling can, again, accept cardboard.

Effective immediately, WE CAN TAKE CARDBOARD (shipping boxes, cereal boxes, pizza boxes, etc). Our collection crews have devised a way to keep the cardboard separate. Please keep cardboard separate from mixed paper - flattened next to or under your bin."

But GLASS is still a no-no:

The Recycling Foundation of Baton Rouge can no longer market all they take in. We need any help you can offer in finding markets for what amounts to clean, heavy sand. It makes an excellent dustless road pack, if you have a shell road on your property or business and want to test it out, let us know. We are watching for research results in Florida for use as a wetlands and beach stabilizer. The real problem is that most large buyers are very far away and there is a glut in most markets. Many Municipal programs do not accept glass. We are working on finding markets and resuming glass collection."
