Recycling

At Dolco Packaging, we recognize our responsibility to our local communities, employees, and shared environment. We participate in the communities in which we operate, volunteering in local events, raising funds for charities and working to minimize our carbon footprint.

RECYCLING

Dolco Recycling Locations

  • Clean polystyrene egg cartons are accepted for recycling at Dolco Packaging facilities, which provide mail-in and drop-off options.
  • For the most economical mailing solution, save several months worth of egg cartons before mailing to the nearest facility to the attention of the plant manager.
