The Robot Pioneering Carton Recycling

When you think of cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology, do you think about carton recycling? Meet the robots transforming the carton recycling industry — making it more efficient than ever before. See how Clarke the robot separates your recycled cartons from the processing line at lightning speed to keep them out of landfills. Pro tip: Keep your cartons uncrushed so robots can find them easier.  

Cartons of Instagram: Earth Day Special

We celebrated Earth Day by taking a team of passionate social media influencers to the Alpine Altogether Recycling Facility in Denver, Colorado to witness the innovation and value of carton recycling firsthand. Check out what they had to say: @modhippiehabits, @neverskipbrunch, @muybuenocooking, @theroadwesttraveled, @chase_brody_mcnary and @noshandnourish. Thank you to our new friends for helping us spread the word! You can do the same by posting using #RecycleYourCartons.

Anastasi and Dianne Phillips who prioritize recycling over trash in their households, to Vicki Velmere who encourages her neighbors to reduce, reuse, and recycle in her mobile home park community — your actions give us hope for a greener future!
