Customer Service

Why Starbucks does not have recycling bins for customers to use?

To ensure we can best manage cross contamination of recyclables and non-recyclables we focus our attention on our back of house area - where the majority of our waste is generated and collected. In our equity stores 90% of our in store waste is either recycled or recovered which means it does not end up in landfill.
