Milk & Juice Cartons

Recycling Cart

There are two general types of cartons, both of which are accepted for recycling – please make sure they are empy and rinsed before recycling.

gable top – the refrigerated cartons used for milk and juice

aseptic – the foil-lined, shelf-stable cartons used for broth, soy milk, coconut water, etc. 

Did you know?  We now have robots that help sort cartons, plastic bottles and other recyclables – check out this cool robot installation video!

Ways to Reuse


Use as Floor Protectors
