Paper cup recycling

Our corporate recycling scheme helps organisations to collect and send their used paper coffee cups to us for recycling.

BUSINESS WASTE SERVICES

Paper cups are treated, bulked and sent for recycling at one of three UK paper recycling mills. Here the plastic is extracted from the fibres before being recycled into new card products

New paper coffee cups are usually delivered in corrugated cardboard boxes that are ideal for re-use and recycling. Used cups need to be empty, flattened and packed back into a clear liner, without any lids, sleeves or stirrers. The flattened cups can then be packed and sealed in their original box and we will arrange for a courier to collect them for recycling.

Courier service for recycling

Please note that our courier service can only handle boxes with a maximum volume of 245cm. We ask you to check that your boxes are suitable for transportation before calling us to arrange a collection. To calculate the volume of a box, add together the two shortest dimensions of the box, multiply by two and add the length measurement. If the total is less than 245cm, the package is suitable for transport by courier.

Please remember:

  • No stirrers
  • No sleeves
  • No liquid
  • No lids
