PC Ice Cream Carton

Did You Know

Paper ice cream cartons and other paper containers for liquid foods, such as paper cups or takeout containers, are commonly lined with a thin coating of plastic or wax that makes them leak-proof. This lining is very difficult to separate from the paper, which makes them non-compostable, and not easily recycled through traditional methods. Place this item in the garbage.
