Key Information

Simply Cups scheme

We are founder members of the Simply Cups scheme – a nationwide collection and recycling scheme for non-compostable paper cups. The scheme transports used paper cups to specialised UK based recycling facilities, where they can be turned into second-life materials.


How the Simply Cups recycling scheme works

Square Mile Challenge

The UK’s highest-profile paper cup recycling initiative to date – we supported the initiative via a match funding partnership with our suppliers: Huhtamaki, Dart Products Europe, Seda UK and Benders Paper Cups. Over 3.6 million paper cups have been recycled to date (October 2017).
