SELANGOR, September 9, 2020 - MILO® UHT today announced a new partnership to recycle 400,000 used beverage cartons by end 2020 with 99 Speedmart as part of the efforts to expand the reach of the CAREton Project.
Launched in 2012, the CAREton Project is a collaboration between MILO® UHT and Tetra Pak® to collect used beverage cartons to be recycled into 'green' roofing tiles and panel boards for the community. This year, with the support of 99 Speedmart, MILO® UHT aims to expand further the reach of the project. A pilot phase will commence in one hundred 99 Speedmart outlets in Klang Valley, with CAREton recycling bins in each location for use by the local community and 99 Speedmart customers.

We have successfully collected over 95 million drink packs since 2012 helping to build over 250 homes from this programme alone. The steps are simple, first - push the straw back into the pack, flip, flap, flat and drop it off at any of our collection points. With the support of 99 Speedmart, the network of collection points will widen considerably. We will continue to drive the recycling agenda forward to build a more sustainable future.'
