Recycling Spotlight
Can I recycle my Pizza Box?

PIZZA BOXES & Recycling

Pizza boxes are made from corrugated cardboard which is recyclable. However, if the cardboard becomes soiled with grease, cheese and other food residue, the soiled paper cannot be recycled. Food is a major source of contamination in paper recycling.

Here’s how to handle pizza boxes:

If your pizza box has a fluted paper liner, remove it and throw it away as it will be heavily soiled with grease and food residue. Check the lid and base of the pizza box. If either part has a significant amount of grease spots or food residue, throw away the portion that is soiled. Tear off any clean and/or fairly clean portion of the pizza box and place it in your curbside recycling bin.  

Let's Talk Snow....Snow and Ice Removal Management

Beginning the third Monday of November and running through the first week of April, a salt standby operation is put into place. They are the first response to any weather event or storm that may develop after regular working hours. The City’s snow and ice priority route is as follows:

  • Emergency vehicle routes, state highways/trunk lines, major streets and bridges
  • School routes
  • Business districts
  • Residential streets and parking lots
  • Alleys

Did you know there used to be a system of parking on the roadway (right or left side) based on odd and even days relative to snow plowing? That process is no longer in place since the adoption of the Major Snow Event Ordinance Section 102-88. 

Declaring a Major Snow Event, when six or more inches of snow is predicted, triggers the requirement that all cars parked on the roadway be moved in advance of major snow accumulations so that the plows can do their work. Restricting parking on the roadway provides clear streets for efficient plowing operations, eliminates impassable streets, avoids vehicles becoming snowed-in, and opens the way for emergency travel. 

How will the city manage the notification process?

News Media Alerts
Automated Calls via the Utility Customer Service billing accounts

Per the ordinance, failure to comply can result in ticketing and towing that could run upwards to $220. Optional parking locations have been identified and can be found on the City’s webpage on the Services tab–Snow and Ice Removal - Policies & Helpful Information. Please help us keep our streets safe and passable during the winter months.
