Have You Seen Pizza Box Receptacles Before?


Old Orchard Beach, located on the inner side of Saco Bay in Maine, gets points for having an arcade with skeeball, a ferris wheel on the water, soft sand, a pedestrian-friendly pier jutting out, and perhaps most of all, this pizza receptacle. We didn't actually eat any pizza at OOB (had to save room for lobster rolls) but appreciated their compassion for the environment and the volume of pizza they must consume to necessitate such a thing. And they aren't alone...


The boardwalk town of Hampton, NH, home to Cristy's and Tripoli Bakery, is also serious about pizza and waste management.

So what's the deal? Are there pizza box receptacles at your beach?
