Landfill

Instructions

Make sure the box is empty and place it in the gray, landfill cart. This category includes Tetra Paks and aseptic packaging. Most juice boxes are layered with mixed materials, which makes them unfit to recycle or to compost.

Alternatives

Buy juice in bulk and serve in reusable glass or metal cups and bottles.

Facts

Juice boxes are a mix of paper, plastic, and aluminum. Mixed material items are not recyclable.
