Did you know?

PIZZA BOXES cannot be recycled due to the food residue (oil, cheese, & sauce) leftover from the pizza. Once cardboard and/or paper products (paper plates, cups, napkins, paper towels) have come in contact with food or beverage or just our skin, it is then considered contaminated. Attempting to clean contaminated cardboard and paper products results in weakened or destroyed fibers rendering it unusable for recycling.
