Most people pride themselves on trying to decrease their carbon footprint and recycling is a great way to start, but many of us don't realize some things should not be put in the recycling bin.

At our house we have the biggest recycling bin you can get for a family home, and we fill that bad boy to the brim over a 2 week period. The current generation of kids including ours, are very conscious of always recycling which in our house consists mainly of boxes and pop cans.

So, next time you get that pizza delivered, even if you see the recycle symbol on the box, stop, do not be so quick to throw it in the bin.
