Yorkshire Tea Boxes

The Box

  • This goes in your paper and cardboard recycling.
  • The tea bags

  • At the moment, these should go in your normal bin. After the switch to PLA, they should go in council composting bins (garden waste or food waste). They're not suitable for home compost heaps because they won't get hot enough to break down.
  • The outer wrap

  • This isn't currently recyclable, so it should go in your normal bin.
  • Taylors Roast and Ground Coffee

    The Box

  • The coffee bags

  • Our coffee bags can be popped in your food or garden council waste bins. These don’t go in your home compost heap as they need quite a bit of heat and space to break down.

  • Takeaway Cups

  • Disposal of compostable cups is complex at the moment. They're not certified as home compostable and shouldn't go in food waste or garden waste bins because they look like standard takeaway cups (which contain oil-based plastic and aren't compostable) so are often removed during processing. So right now they're best collected on their own in dedicated bins, which we provide at events we run. If there isn’t a dedicated bin to put them in, the best place to put them is in a normal bin.
