“Boxes Boxes All Over The Floor, Recycling Shouldn’t Be A Chore”

 

The staff at BCEP is frequently asked - Are pizza boxes recyclable?  Yes and No. CLEAN of leftover food particles and not soaked with grease, pizza boxes are very recyclable. 

 

DIRTY pizza boxes are bad for recycling. Because paper doesn’t get heated during its recycling process, grease and oil combine with the pulp, which can ruin the batch.  Bales of cardboard and paper waiting to be shipped to the mill or waiting to be processed once at the mill, can sit in storage for weeks, where food particles and grease turn rancid, and attract insects or animals.  Once the paper or cardboard is cleaned with soapy water and sometimes chemicals to remove inks and glue it is mixed with clean water to create “slurry”. Once in the slurry, the remaining oil floats to the top.  It becomes impossible to separate the oil from the paper fibers at this point.  

 

When in doubt, cut off the clean tops of your pizza boxes, if it’s a paperboard box recycle the tops in mixed paper.  If it is a “rippled” or corrugated box, recycle the clean tops in the cardboard.  Always discard all soiled bottoms in the trash. 

 

PLEASE empty all Styrofoam and plastic wrapping from your cardboard boxes and flatten them BEFORE disposing in the cardboard bunker.  Food waste, hygiene products, and DIAPERS belong in the trash NOT left in your cardboard boxes or the mixed paper. Please take note, the new product “Kitty Poo Club” is not a recyclable product, PLEASE DISPOSE OF THESE IN THE TRASH.  The staff at BCEP greatly appreciates your cooperation.
