Tetrapaks

Calling Tetrapak recyclable was always a bit of a stretch…

explanation from District Councillor  Adrian Ross as to why tetrapak carton recycling bins are disappearing from Lewes.

“I looked into tetrapak recycling with Lewes District Council officers a while ago after complaints from other residents about the removal of the carton recycling bins.  The reason that they were removed is copied below.  Simple answer is that they are not really recyclable and burning them for energy at Newhaven is more environmentally friendly.  Avoid buying them if you can.

“Some sites which currently have bins for composite cartons (including tetra pak) will have the carton bins removed, this is because our advice is that composite cartons are better disposed of via incineration locally (requiring minimal vehicle miles, and providing power to the grid), rather than the “recycling” process available for cartons. Currently the cartons collected from those bins have to be driven all the way to Yorkshire (due to the multiple layers of aluminium and polyethylene in the cartons this is the only facility which can process them), and then only the cardboard elements are recovered for reuse, with all the aluminium and polyethylene from the cartons just getting sent to landfill anyway.”
