Denver Adds Cartons to Recycling Program

The city of Denver has added food and beverage cartons to its residential recycling program.

The addition to the Denver Public Works’ Denver Recycles program is a partnership with Waste Management of Colorado, a subsidiary of the Houston-based Waste Management Inc.; the Vernon Hills, Ill.-based Carton Council; and WhiteWave Foods Co. of Broomfield, Colo.

The carton types eligible for recycling include milk, juice, cream, egg whites and substitutes, soup, protein drinks, wine, ice cream and yogurt.

In a news release the city said Waste Management helped make the program possible through its investments in its Denver Material Recovery Facility (MRF) and its partnership with the Carton Council.

The city, Waste Management, the Carton Council and WhiteWave Foods will work in the next months to raise public awareness about carton recycling.
