Tetrapak attempt 2

Well, I wrote a short blog about how to recycle tetrapaks - you know, those little boxes that spill orange juice over you every morning. Sadly, it went the way of many things blogger, and disappeared. Poo. Anyway, there's an address of a specialist recycling place on the tetrapak website to post them to once they are empty. Most councils wont touch them as they are a made of several different materials all laminated together. I'd be interested to know if the energy you have to put in to recycle them is more than that required to make a new one - I suspect it is, but saving landfil is usually a worthy aim.

Could just burn the damn things I guess.
