    My store brand coffee comes in composite containers. I just tried separating it and it was a real chore. I think I'll stick to steel only or upcycle the composite containers!

    So is it more efficient to purchase orange juice in the plastic bottle which can be recycled? First choice for me is to purchase fresh oranges and squeeze my own juice.

    I was give some 3 pound size coffee containers with the snap on lid, they make great "garbage bowls". I don't drink this type of coffee, so I helped my dad recycle 2 of these containers at my house for re-use.

    One type of composite container not mentioned is the common cardboard milk carton also used for various kinds of fruit juice. Another version of this carton, with a flat top instead of a peaked one, is used for soups and some pourable solids. It is my understanding that these cartons, made under license from TetraPak, are recyclable, and special equipment is made to chew them up and separate their various components.

      as always, call your hauler. More and more haulers are taking those kinds of things but if your hauler doesn't issue you a guidebook once a year, call them up!
