Pizza Box Recycling

AF&PA's Pizza Box Recycling Industry Statement

Pizza boxes are okay to recycle

“Corrugated pizza boxes that are free of food are widely accepted by AF&PA member company mills that accept OCC. We encourage communities to include pizza boxes that are free of food among the paper-based packaging items accepted in their residential recycling programs.”

AF&PA members indicating they accept corrugated pizza boxes for recycling represent 93.6 percent of the total amount of OCC that our member companies consume.
