Although most pizza boxes are made of recyclable cardboard and paper, grease and leftover food can contaminate an entire bin of recyclable materials. If composting is not available, practice the following options.
Frozen pizza boxes or paper packaging go in the recycle bin. Recycle clean portions of a pizza box, such as the lid.
If a pizza box is soiled with grease, cheese or other food, place it in your trash bin to avoid contamination.
