Coffee cups

How to dispose of take away coffee cups

Most coffee cups can be recycled via the coffee cup recycling scheme. Please don’t put them in your mixed recycling or your paper recycling bins since they cause problems with the sorting machines and contaminate the paper stream that way.

Why not reduce the number of coffee cups you use by using a reusable coffee cup or mug?
