Coffee cups

Please put disposable coffee cups from high-street coffee shops in your general waste bin.

You can’t recycle coffee cups in any of your recycling bins. This is because they are often lined with plastic that is bonded to the cup to help them hold liquid and stop the paper cup going soggy. Compostable packaging such as coffee cups takes much longer to break down, sometimes it can take years. This means that they won’t be composted in the same time as your food and garden waste.
