Recycle? Organics? Garbage?
At the Dal Libraries we see hundreds of these disposable coffee cups being dumped in every available receptacle every day. Our Libraries Green Team is launching an awareness campaign to encourage everyone to put their used coffee cups in the right bin. They’ve just placed sets of PROG bins (Paper Recycle Organics Garbage) throughout the Killam Library to make it even easier for you!
So what is the right way to get rid of those disposable cups on campus? The cup and plastic lid go in the garbage; the paper sleeve goes in the organics bin. Of course bringing your own reusable cup is an even greener option.
The Libraries Green Team thanks you for sorting it right!
