A to Z of recycling and rubbish - Waxy food/beverage Cartons

Item Waxy food/beverage Carton
What can you do with it? You can take waxy food/beverage cartons to any of our HRCs.

These cartons are made up of cardboard/plastic and metal linings, which are well bonded together which creates the effective preserving qualities, however makes it very difficult to recycle, as the different elements have to be separated using a specific process which are different to the recycling collected in your purple top bin.
There is a dedicated recycling point at both our HRCs where these cartons are taken to the specialised reprocessors.
