Norfolk set to expand Tetra Pak collections

Norfolk county council (NCC) has decided to extend its Tetra Pak recycling trial until 2007 as it has been so successful.

If the trial at five of its recycling centres continues to be popular the council plans to make carton recycling available at each of its 20 recycling centres from next year.

NCC recycling supervisor Dan Jacobs said: The Tetra Pak recycling trial that was held from January to June this year proved really successful, but there is still much more we can all do.

NCC launched its carton recycling trial in conjunction with Tetra Pak in January 2006 at its recycling centres in Mile Cross, Thetford, Kings Lynn, Caister and Wells. The cartons are collected from the recycling centres by Pearsons of Thetford before being baled and sent for reprocessing by Tetra Pak.

Tetra Pak national recycling officer Nick Mann said: Were delighted that the residents of Norfolk want to continue recycling their beverage cartons and that NCC is taking the lead in establishing carton recycling facilities.
