Coffee cup recycling in Westminster
Our coffee cup recycling service is a specific collection service designed to encourage more recycling in the workplace and solve the issue of the large number of disposable cups sold in London on a regular basis. The service is available on a stand-alone basis or part of a total waste management package.
We will provide you with all equipment such as specific bins especially designed for coffee cup recycling. We will regularly collect your coffee cups and send them to one of our recycling mills where they are treated via s bespoke pulping process in order to separate the plastic liner from the paper fibres so they can be recycled into something new. The fibres in paper used for coffee cups are especially strong and hence very suitable for recycling. Most coffee cups collected by us are recycled back into the yellow carrier bags used by Selfridges on Oxford Street via this unique recycling set-up. Read here for more information on this.
When your business uses our coffee cup recycling service, you will not only be reducing your overall waste management costs but you will also improve your recycling rate, contributing to a better environment.
The Good-to-go coffee cup scheme
In addition to collecting coffee cups from businesses we also work with the Heart of London Business Alliance and Baker Street Quarter business improvement districts to collect used cups thrown away on-street by visitors and pedestrians. Please read here for more information on this.
WHAT ITEMS CAN BE DISPOSED OF IN YOUR COFFEE CUP RECYCLING
- Paper/card takeaway coffee cups and cups for other hot drinks
How does it work
First, we provide all the equipment needed to start recycling coffee cups. Simply place all your used cups in the cup recycling bin, separating the lid and liquid from the actual coffee cup. We will collect your coffee cup waste and transport it to the recycling mill where the plastic lining is separated from the paper fibres in the cup so the fibres can be recycled. These paper fibres are then recycled into new paper such as that used to manufacture Selfridge’s carrier bags.
WHERE WE WORK
Areas of operation
Whilst we only offer our services to businesses in Westminster, we can help you to find the best waste services possible if you are not in the area. This means that if you are a chain with multiple locations in London and across the country, we can still help you through our partnership with Veolia.
