Give me the ‘juice’ on recycling Tetra Paks

Standard

shutterstock_429067246When I’m out and about on educational visits, I see a lot of recycling bags on the kerbside and I’ve noticed quite a lot of people are putting juice/milk cartons (known officially as Tetra Paks) in with paper recycling.

Unfortunately they can’t be recycled with normal paper as they have a thin aluminium foil liner inside. But the good news is that they can be recycled using Recycling Banks across the Borough.

You can find your nearest Carton (Tetra Pak) Recycling Bank by using our quick postcode checker here. They’re mainly in the larger supermarkets – so I save mine in a bag next to where I keep my shopping bags and just grab them all at the same time, dropping the cartons off before I go into the store. Job done!

Keep up the good recycling work.
