Plastic “Windows” on Envelopes or Boxes?

Recycling Rules

Boxes and envelopes with plastic “windows” are okay to recycle- just throw it right in your Sioux Falls recycling bin:boxes-wth-windows

These are OK to recycle, leave the plastic on and toss it in!

You don’t have to tear that clear plastic window out to recycle the envelope or box. During the recycling process, the cardboard and paper get broken down into a pulp. Items that don’t belong, like plastic, are filtered out and discarded.
