Juice Cartons into Wallets?
Did you know that more than 510,000 tons of milk and juice cartons are generated every year in the United States? Less than .05% ever get recycled according to an EPA report.

Each locality is different, depending on their recycling process capability”, says the (NRC) National Recycling Coalition.
