Faces of 40

A growing network of recycling stakeholders helped bring carton recycling to more than 46.7 million households!

A major milestone in recycling has been reached. One of the world’s fastest growing packages, the carton, can now be recycled in over 40% of U.S. households. In just three years, we have seen an increase of 122% across the country and a staggering 46.7 million U.S. households now have access to carton recycling.

To help us spread the word, here are some materials to share with your stakeholders and residents on your website, in your newsletter and on social media sites.

Let’s continue to work together to grow carton recycling access even more. We’ve already proven
that we can accomplish what we put our minds and efforts to and we hope to continue to work together
toward even greater goals until eventually every household in the country can and will recycle cartons.
Together, we can do this!
