ANCHORAGE – Greasy pizza boxes are now allowed in all Anchorage cardboard recycling.
New data shows that grease and small amounts of cheese in pizza boxes has no effect on the recyclability of the boxes. This material is now accepted in all curbside and cardboard drop-off recycling in the Municipality of Anchorage, including all Alaska Waste recycling.
