Ice Cream Cartons

Put in Garbage/Landfill

Most paper dairy cartons are lined with a plastic called polyethylene. This lining is a contaminate for compost and for recycling. Please place in the garbage.

Plastic and glass ice cream containers are different. Please recycle those with other containers. Remember to rinse them first.
