Carton Council of North America Launches Public Awareness Campaign in Houston, Texas

Perspectives

The City of Houston has partnered with the Carton Council of North America to launch a new recycling awareness campaign aimed at encouraging residents to recycle their food and beverage cartons. This campaign will follow the City’s recent expansion to an automated recycling program, all designed to make recycling as convenient as possible for residents.

The City of Houston is a part of a national movement of communities large and small to add cartons to their recycling programs. Since the Carton Council formed in 2009, access to carton recycling has increased by 165 percent, with now more than 48 percent of all U.S. households having access. Houston residents can recycle their cartons in their green recycling bin or cart, or at one of the City’s recycling drop-off centers. The Solid Waste Management Department continues to expand its popular automated curbside recycling program, with 210,000 homes now receiving these services, and future expansions scheduled for later this year.
