Cambridge City Council is the latest in a series of Local Authorities which have followed the success of carton recycling bring banks by introducing kerbside collection, making it even easier for residents to recycle their cartons.
Fay Dashper, Recycling Operations Manager at Tetra Pak, commented: “By enabling cartons to be recycled though kerbside collections, councils like Cambridge City are now at the forefront of recycling efforts in the UK. They are helping their residents to recycle even more of their cartons, more easily. We and our industry partners are committed to increasing the level of carton recycling in the UK, and our work with local councils across the country takes us and people living in these areas one step closer to achieving that.”
Since April 2007, Tetra Pak and the Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE UK) have made significant investments in the carton recycling infrastructure. After the roll-out of carton recycling schemes across the nation and pro-active work done by key Local Authorities, cartons can be recycled in 86% of UK Local Authority areas, with one in five Local Authorities now collecting cartons at kerbside.
