 Chinese food takeout box


Recycle paper Chinese food take out boxes:

  • In your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

Special instructions

  • Remove the metal handle and put in the black cart as garbage.
  • Rinse out the container before recycling.

Why can't this be composted?

Takeout food boxes have a plastic lining to prevent the container from becoming soggy. To ensure we are creating the highest quality compost possible, leave this item out of your green cart.
