Plastic Cup

Plastic Cup

Plastic cups, like thin plastic party cups are not currently recyclable locally due to changes in international recycling markets.

If plastic cups are included in the recycling bin, they will be landfilled until recycling markets improve.

Sturdy plastic stadium cups with a #5 in the chasing arrows symbol can be recycled curbside or at drop-off centers, as long as they are empty and dry.
