Wash with soap and leave to dry completely. You can recycle your old milk cartons by using them to store things like seeds, nuts, and rice. Because of their caps, they make pouring these foods out so much easier.
People also ask
Are milk cartons recyclable?
Generally, though, milk cartons are recyclable, but they may not be accepted as part of your local curbside recycling. This type of packaging is generally made up of a mix of paper and plastic, as well as aluminum in some cases.
What happens to paper milk cartons?
Paper milk cartons can be separated from other types of paper and sent to paper mills, which turn them into new products. Plastic milk cartons can be melted down along with other #2 containers and turned back into new products as well.
Can you put milk cartons in the curbside bin?
Check with your local provider to make sure, but since almost all curbside programs accept paper and #2 plastic, milk cartons are good candidates for your curbside bin or cart. Be sure to rinse them well and let them drain.
How do I recycle paper cartons?
If your recycling program collects materials as single-stream, you may place your cartons in your bin with all the other recyclables. If your recycling program collects materials as dual-stream (paper items separate from plastic, metal and glass), please place cartons with your plastic, metal, and glass containers.
