Egg Cartons

(Last Updated: 3/22/2019)

Garbage or Compost - Do Not Recycle.

Paper egg cartons can be composted after you remove any shiny paper labels. If you can't remove the label easily, simply compost the bottom of the carton and put the part with the label in your garbage.

If you can't compost, put egg cartons in the garbage. The short wood fibers in paper egg cartons make them difficult to recycle.

Put foam egg cartons in the garbage.


Reuse
Give away egg cartons through a local buy/sell or Buy Nothing social media group. Backyard chicken keepers often need these.
