Recycling is good for the economy and for the environment, and a successful program starts with best practices.
- Rinse and empty all plastic and glass containers
- Flatten all cardboard
- Don't put recyclables in plastic bags
Though many pizza boxes instruct you to recycle, the food and grease left on the bottom of the pizza box can cause contamination in the recycling process. You can still recycle the top of the pizza box, just cut off the bottom of the box that is contaminated with grease and cheese.
