Recycle it - Blue Cart
Empty paper coffee cups, fountain pop cups, soft drink cups and other disposable paper cups can be recycled in blue carts or at community recycling depots.
Paper soup cups and frozen yogurt cups are also recyclable.
Paper sleeves are also accepted for recycling.
Make sure the cup is empty before recycling it. The lid must be removed and disposed of as garbage. Learn more at calgary.ca/coffeecup
If you live in an apartment, townhouse or other multi-family complex, check with your recycling provider to see if paper cups are accepted for recycling.
Starting November 1, 2016 we require businesses and organizations to recycle all the materials we do at home. However, paper coffee cups are not mandatory for recycling as part of the bylaw change. Check with your recycling provider to see if paper cups are accepted for recycling.
