Ice cream cartons

Ice cream carton

Recycle cardboard ice cream containers and lids:

  • In your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

Special instructions

  • Lids with a plastic rim cannot be recycled. Put in your black cart as garbage.
  • Rinse out the carton before recycling.

Why can't this be composted?

Cartons have a plastic lining to prevent the container from becoming soggy. To ensure we are creating the highest quality compost possible, leave this item out of your green cart.
