How do I dispose of the box & packaging materials?

We're committed to tackling packaging waste, while ensuring that our ingredients reach our customers in the safest and highest quality conditions. We use packaging that is recyclable or reusable and also keeps the food at a safe temperature during the entire journey from our facility to our customer's home. Here are some tips for recycling your Home Chef packaging: 

  • Box and Divider - All of Home Chef's boxes and dividers are made from partially recycled cardboard and are curbside recyclable. 
  • Produce Bags - The meal bags (#5) and ingredient bags (#4) can be recycled at all locations that accept plastic bags.
  • Insulated Liner - The insulated liners are made of recycled cotton and denim. To dispose of the liner, simply cut open the film, throw the denim contents in the trash, and recycle the film where you recycle your plastic bags.
  • Ice Packs - Our ice packs are non-toxic and made of 99% water and 1% sodium salt (polyacralate). They can be easily rinsed off and reused. To dispose of the ice packs, simply cut open the film, throw the contents in the trash, and recycle the film where you recycle your plastic bags.
  • Plastic containers - Our plastic containers range in number but are all curbside recyclable.
  • Fruit basket wrap - The fruit baskets are wrapped in paper which is curbside recyclable.
  • Recipe Cards - Recipe cards are designed to be kept in your Home Chef binder and reused. They’re also curbside recyclable.
