City released a statement saying: "Alongside new food and beverage offerings, City are also introducing 100% recyclable and zero plastic beer cups and will trial an ‘edible coffee cup’ this season.
"As part of the Club’s commitment to eliminate all single use plastics from catering operations and improve our carbon impact even further, the Club is introducing an exciting, innovative and market leading paper beer cup.
"The aqueous paper cups, are 100% plastic free, and manufactured from sustainable sourced paper & card, all of which is fully recyclable.
"The cups will be collected throughout the stadium in the same manner as their predecessor via collection points and waste stackers and will exit via our dry mixed recycling waste stream to be 100% recycled.
"For the first time on Campus, an ‘edible coffee cup’ will also be introduced.
"This fantastic and innovative solution provides an amazing solution to waste, just eat your cup!"
