How to recycle

Food and drink cartons, such as for soup, orange juice and long-life milk are widely recycled!

Not all councils collect them for recycling though, so check our postcode locator if you’re not sure.

Top tips for recycling:

  • Make sure cartons are empty and give them a rinse to remove any food residue
  • Leave plastic tops on cartons and recycle together
  • Leave straws in drink cartons as these will be removed and recycled
