Default Re-using Cardboard

Our local transfer station takes cardboard for free but we have found some interesting uses for it around the house. For one, it really works great to keep out weeds from coming up between pavers. If you lay down a couple layers of it under the them, it acts as a weed barrier for at least 2 seasons (so far). When it breaks down, it does so naturally like any other organic material.

Shredded cardboard composts nicely, though we only use it in our flowerbed compost (we only use natural materials in the compost pile we have for the vegetable garden). It does take a little effort to cut up all the cardboard though.
