Global Green USA Launches Cup-Recycling Program at Starbucks

Seven Starbucks stores in New York City will begin collecting and recycling used coffee cups.

This test program - announced by Global Green USA´s Coalition for Resource Recovery -is part of a project that includes recycling old corrugated containers (the consistenly most recycled material in the U.S.). Starbucks cups were tested and certified by Western Michigan University as having “equivalent recyclability and repulpability as old corrugated containers.”
