A to Z Guide: Aseptic Containers

Aseptic containers are not recyclable within the Addison County Solid Waste Management District. Please discard them as trash. Aseptic containers, commonly containing single servings of juice and soy milk, are made up of six layers of paper, aluminum foil, and polyethylene. These layers must be separated to recycle the containers. Unfortunately, there is currently no local facility that can achieve this separation.

If you do wish to recycle the containers, you can send them to a special facility in Virginia. All you have to do is drain, rinse, and flatten aseptic boxes, package them (mark the package with the word “cartons”) and mail to:
