Vending cups

Coffee Cup

Guidance

Plastic vending cups cannot be recycled and should go in your general waste. If the vending cup appears to be made from paper then the inner lining of cups is actually made from a mixture of paper and plastic, like a coffee cup. There are some coffee cup recycling schemes available in some shops including Costa and Starbucks but if you are not able to take your coffee cup to one of these locations, it should go in the general waste bin. Investing in a reusable coffee cup is a great way to reduce waste and save money (lots of coffee sellers offer discounts to customers with a reusable cup).
