 Paper - takeout food boxes


Recycle paper/cardboard food containers and take out boxes:

  • In your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

Special instructions

  • Put leftover food in your green cart for composting.
  • Rinse out any food residue before recycling the takeout box.

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.
