Yes, you can.

I've been told several times now, from the people who endeavour to educate us about what-goes-where in our somewhat elaborate solid-waste collection system, that the cups are lined with a material that is NOT recyclable. I'm told that putting Tim Hortons cups into the paper stream devalues the load, and if there's enough of them, that can cause the entire load to be sent to landfill rather than be recycled. The lids, I am told, are a type of plastic that can not be recycled, or at least is not now. So both are garbage.

Am I the only one who wonders why TH doesn't change this?

Anyway, you can take comfort in knowing that these cups are in fact garbage, not a missed recycling opportunity, the next time you pick one up off your lawn, as I do most days.
