DENVER (CBS4) – In honor of Earth Day the city of Denver is expanding its recycling program.

On Monday Mayor Michael Hancock announced that residents can now toss their food and beverage cartons into their purple recycling bin.

That includes all kinds of cartons for milk, ice cream, juice boxes and more.

“Improving Denver’s recycling and waste diversion is a leading component of our Greenprint Denver initiatives,” Hancock said in a statement. “We’re excited to partner with Waste Management, the Carton Council and WhiteWave Foods to bring this new recycling opportunity to our residents.”

The mayor reminded everyone that the recycling program is free to Denver residents. All they have to do is sign up.
