Wax Paper

Do Not Put In Recycling

Recycle Only the Box

Remove the little strip of metal teeth before placing the box with other paperboard for recycling. Break down the box and then recycle it. 

Ways to Reduce

Buy Petroleum-Free Alternatives

Buy paper that uses soy wax rather than paraffin wax because this paper is made from a renewable resource. Paraffin wax is made from petroleum.  

Ways to Reuse

Clean and Reuse

If the wax paper is not soiled with grease or food, you can clean and reuse it.
