How Can I Recycle or Reuse Wax Milk Cartons?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I have a question about milk cartons. I go out of my way to either drink soy milk or local, organic milk. However, I’m disappointed that the milk comes in those darn waxy cartons. They’re not recyclable in my area. Is there a reason these are used over glass or plastic containers? Is there a way to recycle or reuse the wax cartons? I hate to throw them away!
