Coffee Cups

Burin Peninsula

Click on the tabs below for reuse, recycling or safe disposal options.

Coffee cups are often made with a combination of different materials such as plastic, Styrofoam, wax and paper. They are not easily recycled and are not accepted in recycling programs. Coffee cups should be disposed of with your garbage.

You can recycle coffee cup lids with your Mixed Containers where curbside recycling programs are available. Don’t forget, coffee take-out trays can be recycled with Paper and Cardboard where curbside recycling programs are available or composted in a backyard compost bin.
