Interested in recycling cups?
Simply Cups Scheme
Following the establishment of two specialist cup recycling plants, Simply Cups has developed and operates a recycling service for both paper and plastic cups. Through Cup Movement, we are working with them to make this available in Scotland, providing a solution that will massively increase the current 4% recycling rate for single-use cups.
This trial is currently on hold, pending the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cup Movement partners Excel Vending are giving out 2oo free boxes as part of a trial for small to medium businesses wishing to try out cup recycling:
- If you are based in Glasgow, you can sign up to order a free Dop Box pack through the Excel Vending website.
- In addition to your boxes, you will receive support resources from Cup Movement to help you spread the word and make sure your boxes are a success.
- All participants in the trial will be asked to complete a user survey to help us gather important feedback and insights and will also have the option to feature in our case study
The boxes can only take empty cups, so they need to be positioned near a kitchen area or similar, to allow for liquids and lids to be disposed of separately.
