London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is introducing disposable cup recycling stands to the stations it manages – as many as 2,000 cups are thrown away every day at larger stations, said environmental partnership manager Thomas Miles. He said: “More than ever before, people are focused on the impact they are having on the world around them so we hope that these new cup recycling stands will be a success.”
