140. Throwing away a pizza box
So the reduce, reduce, and recycle people say they don’t want our greasy boxes because then the toilet paper that they make from the paper pulp will end up cheesy and with tomato sauce and blah blah blah…
So they suggest we just throw it away in the trash cans. One problem, though:
THEY DON’T FIT IN OUR TRASH CANS.
How big is your kitchen trash bin? Does a pizza box fit comfortably in there?
Back in the dorms, pizza boxes would typically end up serving as a type of lid for the trash can and then the roommates would just start a tower of trash on top of it (then whoever tipped over the tower would have to take out the trash). Yes, we tried folding the darn thing, and it would just take up the whole bin and upon pulling out the bag from it, the box would re-open, tear through it and cause a mess.
Our best solution was to lean it against the trash can and take it out to the large bins outside separately.
