Municipalities & Sorting Centres

The CCC has developed a range of tools and resources for municipalities and sorting centres.

Carton Recycling Primer

Over the course of its five years of existence, the Carton Council of Canada has has assembled a robust knowledge base. In order to share that knowledge with key stakeholders, enhancing their carton recycling efforts, the CCC has recently released a Carton Recycling Primer, which brings together the information gathered from the several technical studies it has commissioned and the visits to sorting facilities across the country. In the Primer, MRF operators and municipalities can find information, data and best practices around carton recycling collection, sorting and marketing, including baseline data that can be used to conduct a business case to sort cartons. Please note that the Primer is not intended to replace qualified engineering and/or legal advice. We hope you will find it useful and we welcome your feedback

Advertising & Image Bank

The CCC has developed a toolkit of carton recycling ads and images that can be used by municipalities to support residents’ education efforts. The ads, which can be used with different media channels (print, digital, social, etc) are customizable so that municipality-specific information can be added. Facebook (Desktop, Right-Hand Column and Mobile) and Weather Network ads are now available. A series of carton images representing all carton types (juice, milk, soup, broths, etc.) as well as a 30-second commercial are also available for download. Request an Ad/Image.


Entitled Something in it for everyone, the video explains the carton recycling process throughout the various stages of the value chain, from the consumer to the municipality and the MRF, to the mill.


CCC has developed a carton identification poster for sorting facilities. The poster is meant as a quick reference for sorting staff and highlights the fact that all carton types are recyclable and should be recycled together. Bilingual (English/French) and English only versions are available, as well as two size formats. To order posters, please contact Isabelle Faucher, CCC Managing Director, at
