Why recycle cups?
- We use almost 3 billion cups per year in the UK, enough to stretch around the world 5.5 times!
- Every day, we bin 8 million paper cups in the UK, that’s more than 5,500 per minute.
- Less than 4% of paper cups in the UK are currently recycled – be part of the solution!
- Paper cups currently can’t be recycled in most mixed recycling bins as they’re made of mixed materials – paper with a plastic lining to make the cup waterproof.
- The good news is if that cups are collected separately, they can be recycled.
