How to recycle fountain pop and soft drink cups
Recycle empty soft drink cups, fountain pop cups and paper cups:
- In your blue cart
- At a community recycling depot
- Remove the lid and straw and put in the black cart as garbage.
- Rinse out the cup before recycling.
- If you have a compostable soft drink cup, see Compostable Takeout Containers.
Why can't this be composted?
Paper cups have a plastic lining to prevent the container from becoming soggy. To ensure we are creating the highest quality compost possible, leave this item out of your green cart.
