Egg Cartons & Molded Pulp Items


Egg cartons that are made of molded pulp or paper can be recycled in your regular curbside recycling. Other molded pulp items such as drink trays can also be recycled or composted. 

Note: Egg cartons that are Styrofoam or made of clear plastic cannot be recycled and should go in the trash bin. Check with your city waste hauler for more details.
