PC Wax Paper

Did You Know

Most paper used to wrap foods, including waxed paper, sandwich or deli paper, and butcher paper, is commonly lined with a thin coating of plastic or wax that makes it leak-proof. This lining is very difficult to separate from the paper, making it non-compostable and not easily recycled through traditional methods. To prevent contamination of other recyclables, place this item in the garbage.
