It’s estimated that 2.5 billion “paper” coffee cups are being thrown away in the UK every year. That’s almost 5,000 a minute, or 7 million per day.
On Monday 14th March, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall took to the streets of London, as part of Hugh's War On Waste which saw the chef and campaigner accuse the high street shops of misleading the public over claims of using “recyclable” cups.
A lot of the blame for not recycling coffee cups properly could be down to the fact that there aren’t accessible recycling facilities available; we here at Recycling Bins Direct are helping to address this.
We have recently launched a new EnvirocupXL recycling unit to collect larger coffee cups (up to 103mmm - this accomodates the larger disposable cups associated with the familiar coffee shop chains), providing a solution to prevent huge amounts going to landfill. This product is aslo perfect for facility managers and is suitable for food serving areas and offices.
The cups can be dropped through the circular apertures and easily stacked inside the collection tubes, making it extremely easy to empty and clean. It also features a new improved liquid hub, to hold up to 7.5 litres of liquid reservoir to avoid access spillages. Dimensions: H: 803mm, W: 444mm, D: 444mm.
The unit is available in black and ivory with a boat blue liquid hub and comes with a recycling label as standard. Black unit is made from 95% recycled plastic. An A4 signage kit is available as an optional extra, as well as bespoke personalisation labels and unit colours.
