Know what you mean, Fia. I drink far too many cups of a brown liquid claimed to be coffee by those selling it in our local hospital. Along with this stuff comes a plasticised paper cup, a compulsory plastic lid for this (even if you are drinking in the coffee bar), sugar in sachets and the wooden stirrer. Surprisingly the milk is actually supplied in a big jug for you to help yourself - no little plastic buckets of the stuff.
In the main restaurant there are cup recycling bins (plus others for plastic bottles and cans) but in the coffee bars all the trash goes to fill a single bin - very quickly. Hate to think of the volume, even compressed, of trash that is each year!
They placed recycling bins in Gloster some years ago but the great unwashed are incapable of telling the difference between a drinks can or bottle and a chip wrapper. Still, one has to be thankful that they even bothered to put it in the wrong bin I suppose!
Grump, grump . . .
