Compost: Pie Box

Food soiled paper can be composted.

Trash any plastic film and you can put the food-soiled paper in your compost cart or compost system at home. If you can’t poke your finger through it, it’s cellophane and goes in the trash.

If at home, take the stickers off as they may not break down properly in a home system. Home systems do not get hot enough to break down all the items a commercial composting program can.

This box was from a chicken pot pie from Heb, Texas’ grocery store chain, but the same thing applies to other pies, cookies, cakes, etc.
