DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL is set to look at banning non-recyclable coffee cups in its buildings and other areas within its control.

Meanwhile, Minister Denis Naughten has spoken to coffee retailer Insomnia and fast-food restaurant Supermacs about reducing the use of disposable coffee cups in a bid to cut down on waste.

Single-use coffee cups generate a huge amount of environmental waste, so should government introduce a nationwide ban of non-recyclable coffee cups?

Today we’re asking: Would you support a move to ban non-recyclable coffee cups? 

Poll Results:

Yes (11622)
No (1153)
I don't know (243)
