    Can you recycle used food containers such as pizza boxes, coffee cups, ice cream boxes if you cut out all the greasy spots, seams, and wash and dry?

    The kids' crayon drawings one tricked me. Wouldn't the wax be considered a contaminant?

    I honestly wasn't aware that fax paper couldn't be recycled. Although I really haven't had the need to recycle any lately. I thought home fax machines use regular paper and ink which is almost like that which comes off a printer.

      I think they are referring to the thermal paper kind of paper used in older fax machines. Today's fax machines (wait! Do people still use fax machines?!) use regular office/copy paper.
