Hello from Your Green Team,

Single-use non-reusable/non-compostable cups must be thrown in the landfill container.
These cups include both plastic and paper that is unable to be separated during the recycling process. However, for coffee cups, the lid and paper holder are recyclable. Take the extra few seconds to sort these two components into the appropriate bins. 

You can also help by bringing your own reusable cup to your favorite coffee location! This way we can reduce the number of single-use coffee cups that are sent to the landfill.
If you have any questions, please contact recycle@psu.edu or tweet questions to @sustainPSU.

This is what we do, and this is how we do it,
Your Green Team
