When you order pizza in, how do you normally dispose of the box after you've eaten all of the contents inside? While the answer may seem obvious for some, we can guarantee the same belief isn't held among all. In fact, a study backed by Domino's suggests that more people are getting rid of their empty pizza boxes the wrong way than you may think.

The beloved pizza chain recently launched a brand new website that was made just to remind pizza lovers everywhere that pizza boxes are recyclable, no matter how greasy they may be on the inside.

"There is great inconsistency and confusion regarding the recyclability of pizza boxes. Pizza boxes are technically recyclable," it says on the website. "They are made from the same material as a corrugated [cardboard] box, which has an average recovery rate for recycling of 92 [percent]. However, in the past, some paper mills and others in the recycling industry have expressed concerns about accepting them because of fear of food contamination."
