Why can't I recycle a cardboard pizza container? Cardboard is on the recycle list.

If the pizza box hasn't been used and it's a CLEAN pizza box, it can be recycled. Once a pizza has been placed in the box, there is residual grease and food material left in the box. So the food material that seeps into the cardboard make it a DO NOT recycle item.
