Paper Cups Go In Garbage

Paper Cups Go In Trash

Paper cups such as coffee or soft drink cups are typically lined with wax or plastic to prevent the liquid from leaking through the cup. Because of that, they are not recyclable. Please put them in the trash. Or better yet — use your own, reusable cup for food on the go.
