Do you mean the cardboard ones like you get the coffee or shakes in? I always put mine in the blue bag, as we can recycle cardboard here. They won't take polystyrene ones though, but I don't think McD's do them anymore for that reason.

I always chuck mine on the floor when I'm in town, that way I know it will be put in the proper recycle bin / bag by the official street cleaners

My council provides a food and drink container recycling bank so I put them all in that.

I tried a couple of times, but in the end the bottom of the cup started leaking.

I'm not sure if you think that's humorous or if you're really a complete tosser, in both of the meanings of the word that spring to mind.

No, it was just one of the contracts they had.
