Many beverage cartons are recyclable. They are made from paper and lined with either plastic or for longer-life products, aluminium. At the MRF, the cartons are shredded, mixed with warm water and pulped for approximately thirty minutes in a large machine, similar to a top loader washing machine. Flotation techniques are used to separate the paper fibers from the plastic and aluminium lining. The recovered paper fibers are rolled flat and are usually used as the paperboard component of plasterboard.
