Gabriel’s Pizza has partnered with the City of Ottawa to let residents know they can toss their pizza boxes in the green bin instead of recycling it with other cardboard.

Since the boxes often have leftover pizza toppings and melted cheese on them, they can be included in organics collection.
Gabriel’s is currently affixing a notice to each of its boxes that they can go in the green bin. As soon as their new order of boxes comes through, though, each will include a reminder to residents on the front that the boxes can be tossed in the green bin.
