  • andrewr80How much energy does it take to recycle those tetra packs? It costs more money and energy to spectate the different materials than you get back. We are better off not using this style of container!
  • recycle_everywhere@andrew80 Recycled cartons are a valuable source of materials and recycling them has lower carbon emissions than landfilling. For example, by recycling 8,855 tonnes of cartons in Ontario in 2013 we were able to reduce about 29,000 tonnes of C02 emissions compared to the disposal scenario. This is equivalent to removing 6,444 passenger cars from the roadway each year. Visit recyclecartons.ca to find out more information about the benefits of using and recycling cartons.
