Food and Beverage Cartons
What can be recycled?
Packaging for food and beverage products such as milk, juice, soy milk, soups, and broths
Why it wants to be recycled
Cartons contain some of the highest-quality virgin fiber in the recycling stream, and reusing those fibers means that we don’t have to deplete precious environmental resources to obtain more.
How to recycle it
Empty out the unused juice or broth from your carton before recycling, and then toss the carton – without flattening – into your recycling bin (caps and straws can go in there too).
What do recycled cartons become?
Recycled cartons are turned into products you use every day, like tissues, paper towels, toilet paper, writing and office paper. They also become environmentally friendly building materials, like ceiling and roofing tiles.
