Greasy Pizza Boxes

Instructions

If the box is greasy, put it in the compost bin. If not, make sure it's empty and put it in the recycling bin. When in doubt, put it in the compost as it’s safer for the recycling process.

Alternatives

Cut out the greasy spots on the cardboard box and compost them, then recycle the clean cardboard.
