(AmericanRecycler)  Robots have started sorting food and beverage cartons at recycling facilities. Cartons are one of the most sustainable, in-demand packages available, made mainly from paper, a renewable resource from well-managed forests.
The Carton Council of North America wants to explore new, innovative solutions for sorting cartons once they arrived at materials recovery facilities (MRFs). In March, they announced a partnership with AMP Robotics and Alpine Waste & Recycling for a pilot program that uses artificial intelligence to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of carton recycling.
