Penn Waste Now Accepts Cartons!Posted
Beginning January 1, 2015, Penn Waste will begin accepting cartons as part of our residential and commercial recycling programs.
At Penn Waste, we are constantly striving to come up with innovative ways to pull more materials out of the waste stream and recycle them instead. We are proud to announce the addition of cartons to our recycling program and residents can begin recycling them immediately.
As a part of our education initiative, Penn Waste will be airing the advertisement below beginning December 31st.
Cartons are defined as a type of packaging that food and beverage products come in that you can purchase at the store. Cartons come in two forms — shelf-stable and refrigerated.
Shelf-stable cartons contain food and beverage products such as soy milk, soup, broth and wine. These items may be found in your pantry or in cupboards.
Refrigerated cartons contain food and beverage products such as milk, orange juice, cream, egg substitutes and any other type of product that would need to be kept cold.
Recycling cartons is easy! Here are some tips to ensure that your cartons are ready to be placed in your recycling bin:
- Remove any caps or straws
- Make sure the carton is empty
- Rinse out the carton if possible
- Place it in your recycle bin
