Where Else Could It Go?

Confirm what type of parchment paper you have: Some papers may be labeled as compostable at home, compostable at a commercial composting facility, or both.

Parchment paper can often be composted for free at home, or through a paid program at an industrial-composting facility, such as Hillside Solutions.

If you're not sure whether your paper is compostable, place it in the garbage.

Parchment paper can also be contaminated with food or grease, but even if clean, it is not easily recycled through traditional methods. To prevent contamination of other recyclables, place this item in the garbage.
