Drink cartons

Paper & Cardboards


Drink cartons are generally made of paperboard and small amounts of polyethylene with an aluminum foil lining, and are commonly know as Tetra Pak.


This should be placed in the household recycling bin.

Some Civic Amenity Sites also accept drink cartons.  Check the Waste Services Locator on this site for further details.


Drink cartons are currently accepted for recycling.

Recycling drink cartons reduces the extraction of limited raw materials, saves considerable amounts of energy and reduces carbon dioxide emissions.


Make sure all drink cartons placed in the household recycling bin are clean and dry and placed loosely in the bin.
