Antrim Borough Council is delighted to tell you that you can now recycle your fruit juice and milk cardboard drinks cartons in your blue bin.
Environment Manager, Michael Laverty explains, “To recycle your drinks cartons simply rinse them out and squash them down to save on space in your blue bin. The card element of the cartons will be turned into new paper products and the non-card part used to make garden furniture and roofing materials. Now that residents have this handy, new service right on their doorstep, the collection banks at Templepatrick and Toome will be removed.”
Mayor of Antrim, Councillor Roy Thompson, “We hope that residents will find this new system of collection a lot more convenient than having to take the cartons to their local Household Recycling Centres or collection banks.”
