Landfill

Instructions

Dispose of milk cartons in the grey, landfill cart. Make sure it's empty and rinsed-out. These containers may have a thin plastic layer laminated to the paperboard to act as a liquid barrier, which makes it not compostable.

Alternatives

Opt for milk in a recyclable (or reusable) glass bottle.

Facts
