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