A Vancouver association, Binners' Project, believes they have found the solution to prevent coffee cups from ending up in the trash: add a deposit so that the cups go for recycling.

“Vancouverites throw away 2.6 million cardboard coffee containers per week, according to a recent City report. The creators of the Binners' Project believe they have found the solution to slow the explosion of this waste: add a deposit so that the cups go for recycling and not in the trash. "
