Memorial Day Pizza Box Recycling

The other day while working, a colleague and I finished off a box of pizza. It was great and the box was a 20″ square behemoth. It was in great condition and looked like a box that I could almost pack art in. Yes, the pepperonis left oil stains. The slices got moved around a bit, meaning, sauces were spilled. Deth P Sun once did a painting that said, Pizza is Forever, and like almost anything man made it leaves a footprint including a problem in recycling. The contaminants that come from oil, cheese, and the tomato sauce actually hinders recycling and can cause an entire recycling batch to go wrong. So what to do? In a nutshell cut out the contaminated parts and recycle the cleaner parts. (Recycle Bank – Pizza)
