 Paper takeout food boxes


Recycle it

Paper takeout food containers commonly used for leftovers at restaurants can be recycled in your blue cart or community recycling depot.

Sometimes, the boxes may be lined with a wax coating.

Scratch your fingernail along the inside of the box – if it is a waxed box, you will see a noticeable layer of wax under your fingernail.
Waxed boxes are not recyclable and should be disposed of in your black cart as garbage.
