Parchment Paper Is Not Recyclable
Parchment paper is coated with silicone to make it non-stick, making it difficult to recycle. It is also frequently contaminated by food, oil and grease.
Recycle the Box
The box that the parchment paper comes in is perfectly recyclable. You’ll just need to remove the little strip of metal teeth before you break down the cardboard to be recycled.
Ways to Reduce
Opt for Reusable Silicon Baking Mats
Silicon baking mats are a safe alternative to parchment paper, and they are reusable up to 3,000 times.
