American Disposal Services has partnered with carton recycling nonprofit, Carton Council, to launch an awareness campaign to increase recycling of food and beverage carton packaging throughout parts of the DC Metro area. The campaign aims to further boost Suburban Washington’s recycling rate by letting residents know that food and beverage cartons such as those used for milk and orange juice can now be recycled and should be thrown in their Single Stream recycling bin, the same place where residents currently recycle their glass, plastic and cans.

“Nearly 60% of U.S. households currently recycle their cartons, and we are proud to be part of the communication and education effort that aids in the reduction of trash in landfills,” said American Disposal Services’ Communications Director, Anna Wilkinson. “This campaign will help to further boost the recycling rates of the counties we service as well as encourage all residents to recycle their food and beverage cartons.”
