Introducing Carton Ready

We will soon be launching ACE UK’s Carton Ready campaign to help Local Authorities make food and drink cartons part of their consistent kerbside collections, lending a helping hand to the third of English Local Authorities which do not yet collect cartons.

With DEFRA likely to confirm the inclusion of food and drink cartons within the core list of materials for consistent collection, we will be offering the assistance and support needed for Local Authorities to help adapt their waste and recycling systems to meet the new requirements.

As part of our new Carton Ready campaign, we will be sharing the new Consistent Collections Implementation Toolkit with Local Authorities. This toolkit will cover best practice, case-studies, and a detailed step-by-step guide on how to set-up and maintain an effective kerbside collection service for food and drink cartons.

In addition to the toolkit, we’re happy to speak with Local Authorities and Waste Management Companies around options to collect cartons at kerbside. If you would like to arrange a discussion, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
