Single life paper cup disposal is a topic that’s recently gained political attention following Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s ‘War on Waste’ campaign; which ignited the concerns of an increasingly environmentally conscious consumer market. At present the recycling destinations of typical UK council collections are unable to process PE lined paper, despite it being a recyclable material.
At Go-Pak UK Ltd., we fully acknowledge our obligations as a manufacturer and distributor of disposable packaging products. That’s why we’re a proud member and supporter of the Simply Cups Scheme, the UK’s only collection service dedicated explicitly to disposable cups.
Simply Cups offer a closed-loop recycling system in which they collect, bale and distribute used cups to companies who are able to process the PE lined paper, in order to create material for second life products.
