‘Where to Dispose of Milk Cartons?’

Do people know where to dispose of milk cartons? It turns out that not necessarily, and it’s not as obvious as it might seem.

Milk cartons should be disposed of in the container for metals and plastics. However, it’s worth explaining why this is the case. After all, the product’s name alone might suggest a container made of paper. In reality, milk cartons are multi-material packaging, made of paper, polyethylene, and aluminum.

Separating the different materials is possible, but it is a difficult process that is best left to specialists. By throwing milk cartons into the appropriate container, you increase the chances of recycling the packaging. It is also important to crush the carton before throwing it away.
