December 2021 - GFL is pleased to announce that the curbside recycling program is expanding. In addition to other acceptable recyclable items at our recycling facility, we now accept cartons and paper cups. Both cartons and paper cups are easy to recognize and recycle:
Food and beverage cartons are used for products like milk, juice, soup, broth, dairy milk alternatives and more! Cartons come in two types: • Rectangular-shaped aseptic cartons found on store shelves. • Familiar gable-top, refrigerated cartons found in the refrigerated section.
Remember to empty your cartons, replace the cap and place whole item in your recycling container (no need to flatten). Paper cups include coffee cups and cups used for fountain drinks and other cold beverages. Next time you get that beverage to go, remember that you can recycle the cup when you get home. Be sure to empty any remaining liquid and discard straws, lids or stirrers in the trash and then place your paper cup in your recycling container. This advancement is possible thanks to the support of the Carton Council and Foodservice Packaging Institute as part of ongoing initiatives to increase recycling of cartons and cups in communities across the country. Investments like this into Michigan’s recycling systems will have a positive economic, environmental and supply chain benefits for the entire state.
