Disposable Dishes & Utensils

Clear plastic cups, such as those used for iced coffee, are the only type accepted in recycling. Rinse before recycling. Lids and straws should go in the trash.

Unfortunately, plastic plates, plastic utensils and all other disposable cups are not recyclable and must be placed in the garbage. This includes colored solo cups, opaque cups, "Styrofoam" cups, and paper cups.
