Coffee Cups

Last year’s annual waste audit identified 32 tonnes of coffee cups were generated and only 1 ton was recycled for a capture rate of 1.5 per cent.

Coffee cups are not recyclable but are compostable. Place cups in designated recycling stations wherever coffee is sold on campus. Remember, no lids! The images below are the bins you will find around campus to properly dispose of coffee cups AND coffee lids (side of the bin in the second image).
