Don’t worry, environmentally-conscious Caps fan: the Stanley Cup may not have a recycling symbol on its base, but that doesn’t mean it will go to waste [disposal] after only one use.
In an update released today, the Arlington County Department of Environmental Services were happy to they say that Stanley Cup, which is made of “silver and nickel alloy,” can “be maintained and recycled by the team annually for continued Arlington-Washington regional delight.”
Very good news for the team as they head into Round 1.
ARLINGTON, Va. – Stanley cups are now officially listed as recyclable in the online Arlington County, Va. “<https://recycling.arlingtonva.us/where-does-it-go/”>Where Does It Go” searchable trash-recycling guide used by residents and businesses.
By typing “Stanley Cup” into the page’s search box for disposal tips, users receive the following message: “Stanley cups made of silver and nickel alloy and won by the Washington NHL franchise in 2018 should be maintained and recycled by the team annually for continued Arlington-Washington regional delight. #ALL CAPS #Back2Back”

Arlington’s “Where Does It Go” guide, from the County’s Solid Waste Bureau, provides disposal advice for thousands of items ranging from aluminum to medication to bubble wrap to pizza boxes.
Arlington is home to the Washington Capitals’ offices and the team’s practice facilities.
Recycling is good for the environment–and this particular recyclable is especially good for Capitals fans, the franchise, and Arlington County residents. (Try it out if you haven’t yet. It is awesome.)
