It's easy to forget all the things you can recycle, including your milk, juice, and soup cartons. These tips will help you remember! Visit for more info on your community's recycling access.

1. Put a bin right next to your front door so you can recycle junk mail as soon as it comes into the house.

2. Put a recycle bin next to the fridge for when you're done chugging milk straight from the carton.

3. If your city sorts recycling by type of material, recycle your food and beverage cartons with other containers like glass and cans — not with paper.

4. Make a pact with your friends to recycle together.

5. See if you can out-recycle your neighbors.
