Winners of NetWaste BYO Cup and A Discounted Coffee: It looks like there is still a lot of confusion about which bin a disposable coffee cup should go into. The correct answer is the red bin. Disposable coffee cups cannot be recycled because of a plastic coating on the inside of the cup. That is why it is very important to make use of a reusable cup to help reduce the ONE BILLION cups going to landfill in Australia every year!
