PC Frozen Food Box

Did You Know

Most frozen food packaging, including boxes from frozen meals and frozen foods, are commonly lined with a thin coating of plastic or wax that makes them leak-proof. This lining is very difficult to separate from the paper. The plastic lining also makes the item non-compostable, and not easily recycled through traditional methods. To prevent contamination of other recyclables, place frozen food boxes in the garbage.
