Carton Recycling Access Doubles in Three Years
The proportion of US households who can recycle cartons has grown from 18 percent in 2009 to more than 40 percent today, according to the Carton Council, a collaboration between carton manufactures Elopak, SIG Combibloc, Evergreen Packaging and Tetra Pak that aims to increase recycling rates of their products.
Over that time period, recycling programs have been set up in cities including Dallas, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, San Diego and Los Angeles. Today, 43 states and 62 of the largest 100 US cities accept cartons, the group says.
