Pizza Boxes

This item is banned from disposal in the trash in Vermont and must be recycled with blue-bin recycling.  

Disposal Options

Pizza boxes with a small to moderate amount of grease may be placed in your blue bin to be recycled. Remove any paper or cardboard inserts that are used to collect grease and remove any stuck-on cheese or leftover food before recycling. Excessively greasy pizza boxes or boxes with stuck-on food should be disposed of in the trash (you can often tear off the clean top of the box and recycle that separately).


The fee associated with your town drop-off or curbside collection service applies for this item.
