How to recycle paper soup cups
Recycle paper soup cups and paper lids:
- In your blue cart
- At a community recycling depot
- Remove plastic lids and cutlery and put in the black cart as garbage.
- Rinse out the cup before recycling.
- If you have a compostable container, 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.
