Cartons

Cartons

Did you know?
Currently only the fibre part of the carton is recycled. However, the plastic and aluminium that is used to keep cartons airtight is generally used by paper mills in their integrated energy from waste (EfW) plants to provide energy for their processes.

Reduce
Buy liquids in larger volume containers, this reduces the amount of waste and often saves money in the long run too.

Reuse
Try and choose reusable packaging such as glass bottles instead.

Recycle
You can recycle food and drinks cartons in your clear sack. Remove the lids, rinse them out and squash them. Alternatively, take them to your local recycling bank or your local reuse and recycling centre.
