The City of Savannah is expanding its recycling efforts to include plastic coated cartons for recycling in its single stream service. Cartons are typically used as containers for milk, juice, wine, soy and nut milks, and soup or broth. Residents can now put empty cartons directly into their recycling bins.
Savannah’s convenient curbside single-stream recycling system allows residents to throw all recyclables – paper, cardboard, glass and plastic bottles, tin and aluminum cans, and now cartons – into one cart.
“We’re always looking for ways to make recycling easier and more convenient,” said Gene Prevatt, Sanitation Bureau Chief. “We hope residents will take advantage of this new option to recycle cartons so that we can continue to divert more useful and reusable materials from our landfill.”
