Here is how to recycle and dispose of packaging materials:
- Boxes - Break down the box and place curbside with your recycling.
- Insulation - The insulation is curbside recyclable.
- Gel packs - Gel packs are non-toxic, and they'll have specific recycling instructions printed on them. By the way, there are a number of organizations that love gel pack donations! Churches, shelters, Meals on Wheels, Girl/Boy Scouts and other such organizations may be able to use them.
- Food containers - our food containers are BPA free recyclable plastic #1. Be sure to rinse them thoroughly!
