Are the cups from fast food takeout establishments recyclable?



  1. 0 Votes

    Fast food cups are iffy; since they can be made with multiple types of paper, plastic, styrofoam, and a number of mixtures of products. If they are recyclable, there should be a symbol with a number either on the bottom of the cup or near the bottom. Some cups are made from thick paper, but ones covered in wax or hard plastic may not be recyclable if they are multiple ingredients. Normally the plastic straws and lids are recyclable, just make sure to check the cup and/or with your local recycling place about the rest! Good luck!

    The plastic ones are. The cardboard cups that are wax coated are not. Look for the recycle symbol on the bottom of the cup.
