Is this recyclable? Please help, DS has to finish a project and he really wants to use this...

Hi moms. My DS is just about done with his Earth Day Sculpture for school. To finish he wants to put his Aluminum Foil people on his carboard checkerboard.

I looked up the list of recyclable items and it says that CARDBOARD is recyclable, but thats about it.

Now the checkerboard it that, a board, but what concerns me is the checkered part. Its papers that has been glued down. Does that need to come off? Or can he use is as is?

By the way the guidelines for his project state that everything used must be 100% recyclable. Thats why I ask?

Thank you for any help and andvice you can give.

  • Go to a craft store and ask for organic glue- it's 100% recyclable as is tin foil.
