Pizza Boxes

There are two kinds of pizza boxes: ones made of corrugated cardboard, and ones made of boxboard. Both of these types can be recycled if the box does not have significant food waste remaining. If there is cheese stuck all over the bottom, or big greasy stains, the box should be put in your compost pile or the regular household trash. Pizza boxes are accepted for recycling at all LRSWMD Drop Off Locations.
NOTE: Frozen pizza boxes are not recyclable. These contain a moisture barrier that makes recycling as paper/boxboard difficult. The only exception to this rule is a frozen pizza that is wrapped in plastic, and then boxed. An example of this recyclable box is pizza made by American Flatbread.
