Keep It Clean

"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore."
- Jack Brooks 

According to the EPA, " paper and paperboard products make up the largest portion of the municipal solid waste stream in the United States and as a result, offer the greatest opportunity to recycle". 
We have taken great strides in this decade to cut down on unnecessary paper usage. Finding ways to re-use and recycle paper
is becoming increasing popular in our country and
makes up approximately a third of all paper products, clearly a benefit toward conserving our natural resources.
Yet, as paper recycling becomes more commonplace, we must also remember to keep aware of the guidelines for proper recycling in order that our efforts are not in vain. 
boxes, for instance, while recyclable, are good ONLY when they are clean.  Any food residue or even grease renders the cardboard merely waste.  The food or grease is a contaminant that can (and does) ruin entire batches of paper.  What does this mean to us?  It means that MILLIONS of dollars are lost each year due to contaminated recycling.
The moral of this story?  Take the time to look at your recycling guidelines - keep the grease on the wheel, not in the recycle bin.
