Conventional disposable coffee cups are NOT recyclable due to the wax-like film that coats them. Though some products are engineered to compos, they still cannot be recycled. I work for a recycling department and I can assure everyone that they cannot be recycled; they will end up in a landfill. The only solution is to drink out of a reusable travel mug.
The lid can be recycled, and the cup is biodegradeable. These cups also remove the need for a cup sleeve, further reducing the paper used.
