What Happens to Recycled Drink Boxes

Around 60% of these polycoated containers are returned for recycling. Once returned, they're hydra-pulped to separate the paper, plastic and foil. The paper is turned into pulp and put to use again in paper products and as cardboard boxes. Thousands of tonnes of paper pulp are recovered in this process. For every ton of paper pulp recycled, approximately 17 trees are saved.
