Deliver your greasy pizza box to the compost cart

Does back to school time have you ordering pizza delivery or picking up a pizza on-the-go?

pizza box compostingUs too!

Remember: Greasy pizza boxes cannot be recycled. Yes, pizza boxes are cardboard, but the paper fibers cannot be separated from the oil during the manufacturing process that converts cardboard into paper pulp.

Use your green curbside compost cart instead. That goes for any pizza delivery boxes from places all over Portland. One exception: Frozen pizza boxes belong in the garbage.
