We always recycled our pizza boxes. Then we heard the recycling center didn’t want them if they had pizza grease on them, so we could only recycle the top half.
But lo and behold, we found a compost video on-line and discovered we could put entire pizza boxes in the compost! No more guilt about eating pizza! Well, kind of..
We didn’t even have to break them down. They disintegrate immediately!
My husband said, “No one will be able to tell what that is,” as I took the last picture. Well, honey, I’m here to tell you. That, my friend, is what is left of the pizza box. I stirred it today, and I couldn’t find it at all.
