Please remember: The ‘recyclable’ and biodegradable/compostable cups cannot be recycled or composted by local authorities, please see our information on biodegradable products here. Please ensure they all go in your residual bin, not your recycling, food, or green waste bins. They will not break down and will cause problems.
