Recycling Efforts in Europe
Sonoco Alcore operates the first and only beverage carton recycling operation in the United Kingdom in conjunction with the Alliance of Beverage Cartons & the Environment (ACE) UK at its paper mill in Stainland, West Yorkshire. View the recycling process at the mill.
Reducing Emissions - Reducing the carbon footprint of local authorities, who previously had to send cartons outside of the UK for recycling
Recycling assurance – Offering local authorities and waste management companies absolute assurance that collected cartons will be recycled in the UK
Landfill avoidance - Sending cartons to landfill required landfill taxes and gate fees, which local authorities can avoid with recycling
Doubling kerbside collection rates – Doubling kerbside collection of cartons for recycling by the end of the first year
