Various industry partners are joining AF&PA in the call for consumers to recycle their pizza boxes: “When speaking at recycling conferences, the question I’m asked most often is: ‘Are pizza boxes recyclable,’” said Dennis Colley, President and CEO of the Fibre Box Asso- ciation. “This guidance from AF&PA should give munici- palities, recycling centers and households the information they need to confidently recycle pizza boxes.” “AICC applauds the work of AF&PA, its members and our fellow organizations in continuing to provide clarify- ing information on this topic,” said Michael M. D’Angelo, President of AICC, The Independent Packaging Associa- tion. “It’s important for consumers to understand that the container of one of America’s favorite foods is recyclable. We are pleased to participate in the confirmation of the recyclability of the pizza box and encourage consumers to recycle them as they would any other box.” “TAPPI is proud to join with AF&PA to clarify the facts on recycling pizza boxes,” said TAPPI President and CEO Larry N. Montague. “Billions of pizzas are sold in the U.S. every year, which means a lot of pizza boxes need to be recycled. Corrugated pizza boxes are a great fiber source for feedstock in many of our mills today.” For more information about the recyclability of pizza boxes, including AF&PA’s Pizza Box Recycling Statement, visit .
