Empty cartons (Tetrapaks) can now be recycled in Brighton & Hove.
Carton recycling bins have been installed in 17 of the city’s recycling points.
The scheme is being introduced following requests from residents who took part in the council’s waste strategy consultation.
Cartons containing fruit juice, milk, soup, fabric conditioner and other recyclable cartons, can be dropped off at recycling points once they are washed and squashed.
The cartons will be collected, baled and transported to a recycling mill to be made into a number of different products, from plasterboard liner to high-strength paper bags and envelopes.
Councillor Geoffrey Theobald, Cabinet member for Environment said: “We are very pleased that we have been able to respond to requests from residents and add cartons or Tetrapaks onto the list of materials we now collect for recycling.”
Earlier this month the council introduced aerosols as part of its blackbox and flats recycling schemes and public recycling points.
