AF&PA Offers Guidance Over Recyclability Of Pizza Boxes The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) today released new industry guid- ance that aims to clear up consumer con- fusion regarding the recyclability of pizza boxes. The guidance resulted from a study conducted by WestRock that found the pres- ence of grease and cheese at levels typically found on pizza boxes does not impact manu- facturing in a negative way. “Corrugated pizza boxes are successfully recycled every day at paper mills throughout the country, yet consumers remain confused by mixed messages suggesting that some boxes should not be put in the recycle bin,” said AF&PA President and CEO Heidi Brock. “Pizza boxes are recyclable. Consumers should not be concerned about grease or cheese. Remove any leftover pizza and place the box in the recycle bin. We encourage communities to update their residential recy- cling programs guidelines to explicitly accept pizza boxes that are free of food.” In a membership-wide survey, AF&PA members representing 93.6 percent of the total amount of Old Corrugated Containers consumed by member companies, said they accept corrugated pizza boxes for recycling.
