A new pilot project by Return-It, in partnership with Tim Hortons, Starbucks, A&W Canada, McDonald’s Canada, City of Vancouver, Metro Vancouver and Merlin Plastics, aims to keep cups out of landfills by giving consumers a convenient place to recycle them in commercial and on-street locations. In addition to single-use cups, the program also introduces a reusable cup program, with consumers signing up to use reusable cups that will be washed and returned to retail locations.
