Boxes: Berries, Salad and Sushi

A new but recently frequent topic I’ve been asked about is if plastic berry, salad/greens and sushi boxes can be recycled in the blue single stream carts.

Yes they can!

You do not have to remove the stickers, just rinse, dry and throw them in the recycling cart.


Pull the berry juice pads/the white (or formerly white) pads out and throw them in the trash.

Sushi grass is not recyclable and should go in the trash.

Untreated wooden chopsticks can go in the compost carts.
