    So I have read many places that say put you pizza box in your compost. The grease isn't as bad as originally thought and the cardboard and little leftover food works well with compost. Please let me know!!! This post was dated 2 years ago so just wanting an update.

    So what about the fact that we put our paper and cardboard in with all the other recyclables? I try to wash cans, ect., and what about shredded paper? Patt

    Orange juice cartons, milk cartons, juice boxes, soup boxes, ice cream cartons, and more
    Mixed Paper:
    Newspaper, magazines, mail (junk and personal), phone books, food boxes (remove plastic liner), computer paper, flyers, wrapping paper (no foil or plastic wrap), soda and beer cartons (no food-soiled paper, please!)

    What you can't recycle:
    Mixed Paper:
    Hard back books, tissues, paper
    towels, napkins, wax-coated cups or
    containers, food-soiled paper, file folders

      So what in the world is wrong with old fashioned manila file folders? This is getting to be prima donna about recycling. Make things so difficult & picky, your compliance/cooperation will drop from minimal to zero.
