Thanks for completing a Library comments card recently – my apologies for taking a while to get back to you.

Firstly, thank you for the very kind words about our Welcome Desk team.  We are very proud of all of our staff and our Building Operations team who staff the Welcome Desk, do an exceptional job.  Your comments have been shared with all of the staff concerned, so thanks again.

Secondly, I’ve passed your question about coffee cup lids recycling onto the Estates’ Environment team who look after recycling operations.  I know that the question of cup recycling is particularly complicated due to the wax lining of cups but they’ve said they’ll get back to me about the lids.  Once I know more, I’ll contact you again.

Best wishes
