Paper coffee cups now part of curbside recycling program

Paper coffee cups and the plastic lids can now be included in your weekly curbside recycling. Aquatera made the announcement during the city’s Earth Day celebrations at the Montrose Cultural Centre. CEO Bernd Manz expects the move will have a huge benefit on their landfill.

“We encourage environmental stewardship and the more that we can divert from the landfill, the longer life it will have.  And again this is a great way to expand that program with things that people use everyday and before have been throwing out, but now can recycle.”

The cups and lids must be rinsed and clean of any coffee remnants before they can be recycled.
