Re: No more disposable coffee cups

Ottawa (where I live) recently implemented a green bin, or food waste composting program.  I checked the city website and disposable (paper) coffee cups ARE allowed in the green bin.  This doesn't change my resolve to not use them, but I thought I would let everyone know to check with their local composting program to see if paper coffee cups are accepted.

  1. Yup, here in Halton too. I checked the City of Toronto and they take "fast food paper packaging" which I would read as paper cups. The City of Mississauga does not take them. I had no idea there was such diversity in green cart programs. For example here in Halton we take dryer lint. In Toronto they don't take dryer lint, but take diapers and sanitary products. So, you're right best to check with your municipality.
