We are continuing to support efforts to increase and promote recycling in Lyme. Research is underway into the statutory household recycling facilities of other local authorities.
And for other beverage cartons widely used to package milk, fruit juice and an increasingly wide range of food products, including soup, chopped tomatoes and pulses.
Dorset Waste Partnership has placed a new container in Holmbush Carpark, alongside one for textiles and one for aluminium foil. Kerbside recycling is not available at the moment for coffee cups or food and drink cartons but by taking them to Holmbush, we can do our bit for recycling and make a dent in the huge number of paper coffee cups with plastic lining that need to be recycled separately from paper collections .
Take away coffee cups can also be taken to Costa where they are stored and taken regularly to Costa’s own recycling centre for cups. You can take in cups from other cafes/shops are well as any purchased from Costa.
