Recent survey reveals measures that would encourage consumers to place more food and beverage cartons in the recycling bin

Away-from-home recycling: schools perceived as major players in educating youth

The Canadian Beverage Containers Recycling Association (CBCRA) has worked to boost its Recycle Everywhere 101 Program in Manitoba with support provided by the Carton Council of Canada.

A recent consumer research study conducted by the Carton Council of Canada found that extending Canadians’ good recycling habits beyond the home is challenging for most. As kids prepare to head back to school, parents look for ways to streamline the routine and tackle the dreaded lunchbox preparation. It’s therefore no surprise that juice boxes, for example, are one of parents’ favourite items for an easy and healthy thirst quench. The more difficult part is ensuring that these beverage packaging end up in the recycling bin instead of the waste bin once our little ones have emptied them.

How the Carton Council is helping build a sustainable recycling supply chain for food and beverage cartons

Ad used for the carton-focused digital advertising campaign, which ran in four Ontario communities  in Fall 2015

My first year as Managing Director of the Carton Council of Canada (CCC) – a group of carton manufacturers united to grow carton recycling in North America - has been an exciting one. I am thrilled to see a real concern for the current sustainability challenges the industry faces. From the field, to the plate, to the recycling bin or the compost pile, the journey of food makes us accountable as a society for the waste it leaves behind and ultimately, its diversion from disposal. The concern is also valid when it comes to packaging milk, juice, wine, soup, broth - cartons are no exception and are widely utilized for food and beverages.

Carton Council of Canada goes Digital on Consumer Engagement

Customized ad for the city of Toronto featured on The Weather Network. A customized ad was created for each of the participating municipalities.

The Carton Council of Canada (CCC) is an industry association of leading companies who manufacture and market carton packaging and whose mandate is to grow carton recycling nationally. Good progress towards this goal has been achieved since our creation in 2010, particularly on the carton recycling accessibility front. However, there is still room to boost carton recycling rates. For example, in Ontario, while 98% of households are able to recycle their used cartons via the Blue Box system, the carton recycling rate stands at 43.3%[1].

U.S. packaging industry study findings of interest to sorting centres in Canada

What factors affect the end of life of a recyclable container? Why do they sometimes end up in the wrong bale at the sorting centre? Five packaging industry groups in the United States, including the US equivalent of the Carton Council of Canada (CCC), recently commissioned a study to find ways to optimize the recycling of their packaging after it goes into the bin or cart. The study specifically evaluated where packages end up in a sorting facility, why packages flow in certain ways and what potential changes to the sorting processes could improve recycling of recyclable containers, among them carton packaging for milk, juice, soup and other food and beverage products.
