WCA Recycling: Fairfax County Now Accepts Cartons for Recycling

June 2016 update from http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpwes/recycling/cartons-are-recyclable.htm

Cartons are Recyclable in Fairfax County

Throughout Fairfax County, you can now place cartons in your recycling bin. This new addition to our program will help
divert more materials from the landfill.

What are cartons?

Cartons are the packaging for many products you can find at the store including milk, juice, cream, egg substitutes,
soy milk, soup, broth, and wine. They come in two different types-shelf stable and refrigerated cartons.
Cartons are recyclable

How do I recycle cartons?

Place empty rinsed cartons in your recycling bin. Please remove caps and straws.

What happens to the cartons I recycle?

As with all recyclables, they are first taken to a local material recycling facility to be sorted and baled. The bales
of cartons are then placed on a truck and transported to a paper mill. Here, fiber in the cartons is converted into pulp,
which in turn is made into recycled paper products and building materials.

Why should I recycle cartons?

Cartons are made from high-quality paper, making it a valuable recyclable commodity. This means that companies want
this material to make new products, and cartons can generate revenue for a recycling program, offsetting some of the
costs of collection.
Don't delay, start recycling your cartons today!
