Milk/Soy Milk Containers

Aseptic Containers: Milk and Soy Milk Cartons and Juice Boxes

These cartons have a film/wax that make them waterproof therefore they cannot be processed with mixed paper.

Aseptic processing is the process by which a sterile (aseptic) product (typically food or pharmaceutical) is packaged in a sterile container in a way that maintains sterility.

Recycle

Unfortunately, they can’t be processed with the mixed paper and must be thrown out.

In order to collect a product the county must have an end user or broker. Currently we do not have a market for milk/soy cartons. We are not aware of any opportunity for recycling them locally. Hopefully an option will develop in the future.

 5 Nifty New Uses for Egg Cartons

After they’ve finished keeping your eggs safe, most egg cartons get relegated to the recycle bin. (Please, not the trash!) As a weekly essential in many refrigerators, that’s a lot of disposed egg cartons. Put your leftover egg cartons to good re-use with these five nifty (and crafty!) ideas.

Organizer: Perfect for tucking into a desk or kitchen drawer, egg cartons are just the right size to corral small items. Fill the cups in an egg carton with those teeny desk necessities that always go astray—paper clips, rubber bands, staples and erasers. Dress up your egg carton with a coat of paint and you can even place it on your desk instead of stashing it in a drawer.

You can also use egg cartons to hold all of those other junkie items that never seem to have a place like batteries, hardware and other odds and ends.

Seed Starter: Give your seedlings a head start for success by starting them off in empty eggshells held in a leftover egg carton. Simply save your empty eggshells as you use them. Once you have an egg carton full, fill each eggshell with soil. Place one seed in each eggshell using tweezers, water regularly and watch your baby seedlings grow!

Bird Feeder: It’s nothing fancy, but the birds won’t care. Create a bird feeder with just an egg carton and string. Secure one strand of string on either end of your egg carton. Then, tie the strings to a tree branch, so the egg carton is in the air, but remains level. Fill it up with birdseed and watch your feathered friends flock to your backyard.

For a more elaborate egg carton bird feeder, check out these instructions from the National Wildlife Federation.

Paint Palette: Are the kids (or you) feeling artistic today? Before the paint starts flying, use an egg carton to hold small amounts of a variety of paint colors. It’s an easy-to-use and easy-to-clean up paint palette! Don’t forget to leave a couple of spots in the egg carton empty for color mixing.

Decoration Storage: Cushion small, fragile holiday ornaments by storing them in leftover egg cartons. Your ornaments will stay snug and secure (especially with an additional layer of tissue paper or two) until the holidays come around again.

Uses for Brown Paper Bags

  1. To ripen peaches, avocados, pears, apples or tomatoes, put them in a brown paper bag. The paper helps retain the natural gases that ripen the fruit. Remember, as soon as you refrigerate the fruit or vegetables, the ripening process stops. Store mushrooms in a brown paper bag to keep them fresh.
  2. To keep onions on hand for two or three months without sprouting, remove them from their mesh or plastic sack and put them in a brown paper bag on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator.
  3. Tie a large brown paper bag over the head of your dust mop to shake off the dirt and dust inside the house.
  4. Drain fried foods, bacon or cool cookies on brown paper bags
  5. Cut or tear a 10-inch strip along the back seam of a brown paper bag and slip it over your car steering wheel to keep the wheel cool and touchable during hot weather.
  6. Remove wax from tablecloths or carpets by placing an opened brown bag on the problem and moving a warm iron over the spot-quickly. Greasy spots will appear on the bag. Move clean paper to the spot and continue until nothing appears
  7. Kids find it satisfying to blow up old paper bags and smash them. They also like to make masks out of them. Just cut eyeholes and have them draw faces.
  8. Use a dampened bag as an emergency pressing cloth.
  9. Use paper bags to make big building blocks for forts, castles, towers and tunnels. Lay the bag flat on the floor or a low table. Fold the top over about 6 or 8 inches and crease the bag on the fold. Open the bag and fill it with scrunched up newspapers, putting in one sheet at a time. Fold the bag on the crease line and securely tape the bag closed.
  10. To save the trouble of scraping snow and ice off your car’s windshield, place a ripped paper bag beneath the wipers when you park the car. Just peel it off in the morning.
  11. Line a kitchen wastebasket or trash can with an opened up paper bag for easy disposal.
  12. Line your garden to help reduce weeds.
