Re: Don't recycle those pizza boxes!!!!! 2018/02/14 16:00:59 (permalink)
I have a neat item in my garden.  A metal garbage can with the bottom cut out, half buried.  We toss coffee grounds, egg shells, veggie cut offs, etc. in there to compost.  Between that and recycling, we have a family of four down to a half bag of garbage every week.  
 
At my office, I have an 8-yard co-mingle recycling dumpster.  Between cardboard, vinyl siding cut offs and unusable vinyl accessories, I am eliminating about a 30-yard dumpster every other month.

Joe, do you put pizza boxes in with the co-mingle trash (like I used to), or compost them? I am experimenting myself. I tore up a single box, and spread it out as a layer in my compost bin. It has been working all winter, but I expect very slowly because of the cold. I expect that the batch will be "done" about Memorial Day. They say compost is "done" when you can no longer tell what it is made from, so I wonder if I'll be able to find the cardboard.
 
As another poster mentioned, pizza boxes make excellent fire starters.

No pizza, no boxes to recycle, or for Jim, to throw away. Presto!
Now I'm not contributing to the trade deficit.
See? A win win.
And my kidneys thank me.

tmiles, I really don't do a lot of take-out or delivery.  I really enjoy going out for pizza and getting a nice hot, crispy tray/pie dropped in front of me.  But, the boxes I do get, I will use in my garden now.  I put cardboard between my plants and cover it with shredded paper from my office.  The perfect mulch!  Then, during the growing season, I spread grass clippings on top of that.  I never have to water my plants, even during near drought conditions.

What do grocery chains do with the Styrofoam?


My town transfer station no longer recycles styrofoam. We are now to put it in with the trash that gets burned for electricity. A friend, who is often full of s---, but some times right told me that the styrofoam makes the trash in to  better fuel (some times the plant needs to help the trash with natural gas to keep it burning). His other theory, is that "cheap" scrap styrofoam could be recycled to bad guy bomb makers. Styrofoam can be used as a raw material for bombs, especially napalm, but I'd be surprised if recycle companies have not been educated by law enforcement.

Why would they need to recycle when everything to make bombs is now legal in New America?
