Most of the items we throw away can be recycled. But, like people, materials have different needs. Mixed Recycling works for dry things such as plastic and paper, and some of us are lucky enough to get our food collected separately. Other materials need their own recycling solutions.

We're here to help.

Drink Cartons recycling

Drink Cartons recycling

Paper, plastic and aluminium are layered together to make cartons. All three materials can be recycled: the challenge is separating them.

We send used UHT cartons to the UK’s only dedicated beverage carton recycling facility where they separate the layers and make coreboard, the material gravy and hot chocolate tubs are typically made from.
