How To Dispose: These can be recycled at the Retford and Worksop Household Recycling Centres.

Details and restrictions: Tetra Pak and cartons are now accepted for recycling. Please note these can go to the Recycling Centres ONLY and should not go in your kerbside recycling bin. The Materials Recovery Facility cannot sort cartons and treats them as general waste. Cartons are made from at least two different materials bonded together which makes them very difficult to recycle and why they need to be collected separately. Please note that this is a TRIAL only until the end of Autumn 2021.
