Recycle in Your Bin or Cart:
Unwaxed paper plates can go in your recycling bin or cart, as long as they are free of food residue. Heavily-soiled or waxed paper plates belong in the trash.
This item follows the basic rule for fiber recycling in your bin/cart (it’s paper, cardboard, or a carton). Paper and cardboard must be flat. Cartons must be empty at a minimum, but rinsed whenever possible. Plastic caps (on cartons) can go back onto their plastic spouts.
