Cartons are one of the most sustainable food and beverage packaging options in existence. They are made mainly with renewable resources, have a low-carbon footprint and are highly recyclable.
Since 2009, the Carton Council has worked with local governments and communities across the country, growing access to carton recycling. Currently more than 40% of all U.S. households have access to carton recycling – that’s roughly 50 million households
By adding cartons to your recycling program, your county can reach sustainability goals faster, while saving costs on landfill tipping fees and earning revenue through the sale of recycled cartons to a growing list of end markets. This helps your county’s bottom line, providing growth and strength to the local and state economy, as more counties add carton recycling.
Counties across the country are taking steps towards success by adding cartons to their recycling programs, it’s simple, and we can show you how. Carton Council can guide your county to a successful carton recycling program.
