Recycling

Increasing carton recycling

A significant number of households in the UK have access to beverage carton recycling, however ACE UK aims to increase collections further – not only from households, but also from on-the-go channels such as commuter journeys or on-street recycling and a wide variety of commercial establishments. 

The ACE UK Recycling team works in close partnership with all waste stakeholders, from local authorities and waste management companies to Government agencies and retailers, to look at providing solutions for carton recycling. As well as collection, we also place emphasis on working in close collaboration with others, including the paper and board manufacturers, and recycling technology companies.
