The Tim Horton website says it depends on the local municipality.

The SSM, ON city recycling website says nothing specific either way.

What do you say?

Thanks!

I saw a City employee on the news talking about this issue last year, he says yes, they are recyclable here.

I prefer to save the environment by simply not buying any Tim Horton's coffee. I make far better coffee in my own kitchen - and I use a reusable cup!

Anything I throw in the yellow box seems to never come back I find.

wax coated containers are recyclable and accepted in our yellow boxes. By the way coffee cups are not wax coated. the heat would make the wax go in your drink only cold stuff comes in a waxed container.

Years ago, the cups were not recyclable because they had a foam core between paper surfaces. I guess that is gone now.

Biodegradable would be better, as I see lots thrown on the side of the road on my way home... >:(

Apparently Country Style is accepting loser Timmy's cups and giving free coffee for them. Was on the news..will check to see if it's all locations.
