Black plastic and coffee cups (GTA)

1. IS black styrofoam not recyclable in Toronto?

2. Also, I know U of Toronto recycles coffee cups and other waxed paper food containers, but I went to the Air Canada Centre and somehow they included black plastic trays and coffee cups in their photo above the recycle box.

Can anyone verify that you can dump all your coffee cups and black plastic trays there, since Toronto doesn't accept those items?

I read it's because the scanners can't pick up the light reflected off the black plastic and hence can't sort it out.
