Coffee firm’s litter rap


By Paul Thornton

COFFEE giants Starbucks have been hit with a litter rap after claims they left trade waste outside a Scottish branch.

It is claimed the chain left bags of trash outside their popular coffee shop in Edinburgh’s Princes Street in August last year.

The rubbish is said to have been left outside the back entrance of the café in the capital’s Rose Street.

Starbucks are also alleged to have failed to ensure the bin bags were disposed of correctly.

The firm were due to appear at Edinburgh Justice of the Peace Court.

But the case was continued by the Crown for further discussions and Starbucks are due back at court next month.
