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.


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


Though these were once accepted in your green cart, as of 1/1/2022 Berkeley's procedure is for these items to go to landfill.
