Inglewood Pizza is taking a slice of sustainability

Mar 8, 2017 Author: Inglewood Pizza

What about that greasy pizza box? Common recycling questions answered.

Now that the City of Calgary can recycle pizza boxes, all of the containers we use with a little help on your part can are recyclable. At Inglewood Pizza, we continue to do our role in creating a more sustainable environment.  Pizza boxes are recyclable by putting them in your blue cart or at community recycling depots. The paper liners inside the pizza boxes should be thrown away due to the excess amount of grease, as well as any leftover pizza, that’s garbage. If you live in an apartment, townhouse or other multi-family complex, pizza boxes should be accepted in your building’s recycling program.

Our part in sustainability.

Over the last six months, we have taken a slice of sustainability by converting all of our polystyrene foam (Styrofoam is a trade name) containers to 100% biodegradable sugar cane fiber. We have converted the majority of our containers to GreenCentury® NatureFibre® brand molded fiber take out containers. These containers are made from sugar cane fiber and are 100% biodegradable, compostable, and organic. Using these materials is a perfect renewable and natural resource for sustainability, and we are excited to be doing our part in creating a more sustainable environment.

Right down to the aluminum pan.

All of our other metal containers are recyclable as well. Our aluminum pans can be cleaned of any leftover food and placed in your blue cart or at community recycling depots. For more information on what can and cannot be recycled please watch these important segments from BT television.
