Which bin do I put my coffee cup in?!

If you have ever taken the time to ask yourself this question, then thank you! The UC Sustainability team work hard to ensure waste is disposed of correctly and reduced as much as possible.

The labels on the bins around campus are currently out of date and will be updated soon, so please watch the short video linked above to familiarise yourself with the correct way to dispose of your coffee cups.

In summary:

  • disposable cups and lids go in the red bins
  • if you’re near a cafe, you can put your cup in a blue bin, but still put the lid in a red bin
  • remember to bring your own mug or reusable cup to your cafe

If we all put in a small effort to do our bit we can create a more sustainable campus for everyone!
