Reusable cups

University of leeds coffee cup-shaped recycling bins which are located all over campus

Updated: 26 October 2020

We are delighted to announce all GFaL cafes will be accepting re-usable cups again from Monday 2 November. To make our cafes even more sustainable, we’ve also installed specific coffee cup recycling bins in busy locations to make it as easy as possible for you to recycle your cups.

Look out for our coffee cup-shaped recycling bins in the following areas:

  • The Refectory
  • The Edit Room
  • Café Maia at Ziff
  • Loma
  • Café 7

The coffee cup recycling bins are designed to make it as easy as possible for you to recycle your disposable coffee cups, with apertures for the lids, the cup and for any wasted coffee to be poured.

We understand how important it is to our customers and for Great Food at Leeds to remove single-use plastic from our operations. We will continue to embed a sustainable approach into everything we do, working closely with the University’s Sustainability service.
