Other recycling options
Some 7-Eleven will take your empty disposable coffee cups and lids. Find a disposable coffee cup recycling point near you.
The cups and lids will be collected by Simply Cups, who will take them to a special facility that can process them for turning into new products.
Why they can't go in your recycling bin
Coffee cup lids can't be recycled as the lids are too small to be sorted by the machines at most processing facilities.
What about the cup itself?
See our Disposable coffee cups page.
Waste and recycling during coronavirus (COVID-19)
Household waste and recycling collections will continue as normal. However, council waste and recycling facilities are not open to the public. These facilities include collection, treatment, disposal and transfer stations. They will remain open for commercial contractors only.
If you have unwanted items at home, hold onto them until these facilities re-open. For other options, check the waste and recycling advice for your local council area.
