    I wouldn't call it myths when the rules from the previous company stated no pizza boxes, magazines, shirt cardboard or junk mail. How is one supposed to tell the difference between waxy and plastic coated paper?

    I'm confused about paper with the waxy coating not being recyclable. Waxy type containers like juice, cream, & buttermilk cartons are recyclable, right? What's the diff?
