Recycling

Recycling

Wash, squash and recycle. All of the materials used in the manufacture of beverage cartons are fully recyclable.

After significant investment and years of working closely with stakeholders, the overwhelming majority of UK local authorities now offer a carton recycling service – either from the kerbside or through ACE UK’s own bring bank system.

The collected cartons are sent to a dedicated beverage carton reprocessing facility, thanks to a partnership between ACE UK and Sonoco Alcore.
