Why aren’t the standard Starbucks cups recyclable?

Our paper cups have a low density polyethylene coating on the inside of them, both elements are recyclable but need to be treated separately. Currently in the UK the ability to do this is dependent on many factors, one being that there are few facilities to process this type of recycling. All our paper sleeves and lids are recyclable.
