Seattle is considering mandatory recycling for businesses, including paper coffee cups.

Currently, businesses must recycle paper and cardboard, not including coffee cups.

The proposed law would require businesses to add glass, aluminum, tin, plastic and coffee cups to the list.

After an education campaign, the city would start tagging commercial garbage cans and starting in July and begin citing businesses in 2015.
