I buy fish-shaped crackers in a 30 oz. container that almost looks like a milk carton. Is it recyclable? If it is, which recycling bin should it go in?

Palm Beach County recyclers who are experts in carton-graphy know that milk and juice cartons go in the blue
recycling bin with the rest of their containers. But cracker cartons?
Those are a no-go.
Cracker cartons are not made the same way as milk cartons, and they include a foil-like lining that keeps them from being recycled. Because of that, they should go in the garbage where they will be sent to one of our renewable energy facilities, burned and turned into electricity.
