can I recycle paper plates?

    The same logic when it comes to recycling pizza boxes applies here. It is difficult to recycle paper products that have food stains, especially oil stains on them. The food residue that seeps into the paper plates gets in the way of the recycling process. First of all, food stains and oil can create potential health hazards for those who process them. Second of all, the oil will definitely not mix with the slurry of paper and water. Just a small amount of oil, can prompt workers to stop the process and clean the machines just to get back on track. So if the paper plates are clean, there won’t be any problems. But if they have food stains on them, don’t mix them in with the bunch of recyclable products.
