I had no idea.
I thought I was so with it when I learned soiled food containers (like pizza cartons) were big NoNo’s in the paper recycling process. There is so much more:
- Food waste of any kind
- Liquid (make sure acceptable containers are free of food or liquid)
- Food soiled containers such as pizza boxes, paper plates, napkins or paper towels
- Plastic takeout containers
- Plastic trays (Lunchable trays, frozen dinner trays or bowls, etc.)
- Plastic trays, buckets, and flower pots

Turnip Green Creative Reuse at 407 Houston Street will take bubble wrap, tissue paper, large pieces (or rolls) of wrapping paper, gift bags, greeting cards (the front of them, if they’ve been used) and ribbons and bows. This is assuming that they’re in good condition. Turnip Green is basically a thrift store for arts and crafts supplies.
