How to Recycle Milk & Juice Cartons
Cartons like those used for milk, juice, soy or grain milk and soup are recyclable. Curbside programs continue to increase their carton recycling rate throughout the U.S., and there are drop-off and mail-in options available as well. Despite the type, refrigerated or shelf stable, cartons are a valuable source of material to make products like tissue, paper towel, and even building materials.
But that is not all. Cartons are made mainly from paper, a renewable resource. Unlike finite resources that will be gone once they’re depleted, renewable resources are there forever, if well managed.
