TORONTO (CBC) - The City of Toronto is considering everything from a tax to an outright ban on objects like paper coffee cups, fast-food containers and plastic bags that clog the recycling system.

Goodbye paper cups and hello coffee mugs !
Do you agree that paper cups should be banned ? Would you pay extra for a cup or would
you bring a thermos ? Why ?

I think that paper cups shouldn`t be banned . Toronto just needs a better recycling plant .
Yes , I would pay extra for a cup occasionally but I would bring a thermos or a mug next time .
Paying extra for a cup isn`t that worth it . =/

I dont like this at all, cause if one place does it, most likely so are others, blame this one on those fucking dumbass environmentalists. Hell its there fault the price of gas is so fucking high, cause they wont allow oil drilling. Damn annoying assholes.

erm. the 'paper' cups for coffee are all lined with thin plastic to keep it from leaking so they aren't easily recycled. i think this is a good idea on the paper cups but it would be hard to carry a cup with you everywhere..

I choose a paper cup over a heavy cup anyway.

i prefer using coffee mugs, they don't burn your hands cuz you've got the handle with it unlike paper cups. BAN THEM

Go ahead and ban them.
I can't really say I care either way.

I don't live in Canada, but even if I did, I wouldn't care. I don't like coffee very much, and I'd just carry around a mug in my backpack.

I hate paper coffee cups....they hurt. I prefer mugs cause you can get really cute designs on them and reuse them. My teacher went to Disney Land and got a cute Micky Mouse mug

I`m not sure , actually . Probably a considerable amount since they`re planning to ban paper cups .
