Grundon launches Paper Cup Recycling service

7 Jun 2018

Grundon Waste Management will be unveiling details of its newly-launched Paper Cup Recycling service at this year’s Facilities Show.


With the cost of the service tailored around the frequency of customer collections and the number of cups to be recycled, rather than membership fees; Grundon also guarantees that all its collections are certified CarbonNeutral®.


Thanks to a new partnership with CupCyclingTM by James Cropper, one of the UK’s leading cup recycling facilities, customers will be able to buy back paper made from cups which have already been recycled.

Stephen Hill, Grundon’s Head of Sales, explains: “Finding the right solution for recycling paper cups has been high on our agenda and we’re confident this new service, which guarantees 100% recycling, provides the most flexible and sustainable offering available today.

“This provides both environmental and financial benefits and we believe it will appeal to a wide range of businesses and organisations who use disposable paper cups.”


The new service is available as a standalone offering - meaning organisations do not have to be existing Grundon customers - or as part of an existing total waste management package.


Among the customers that have already signed up is West One Shopping Centre, located in the heart of London’s West End. Centre manager, Cyrus Annan, said: “We are passionate about sustainability and take recycling very seriously. We have a significant number of outlets who serve coffee and other drinks in disposable paper cups so this move makes complete commercial sense for us and our tenants.

 
"Most importantly though, this new service means we divert the thousands of cups that would have ended up in general waste, into recycling; so it really does tick all the boxes.”

The new service includes:

- Expert advice and support
- Installation of specially-designed colour-coded paper cup recycling bins with a central reservoir for excess liquid and a side pod for lids-
- External cup recycling containers where cups can be stored ready for collection
- Signage, posters and marketing materials to encourage responsible disposal
-Training for employees and associates, including cleaning and facilities management companies


To deliver the service, Grundon has partnered with CupCyclingTM by James Cropper, the world’s first recycling process dedicated to upcycling take-away cups. Clean paper cups are collected by Grundon and taken for processing and baling at its own Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs), before being sent to James Cropper’s own paper mill.


There, the paper - which makes up around 90% of the cup material - is separated and converted back into Forest Stewardship Council (FCS) certified paper fibre. The remainder, plastic polymers from the polyethylene film, is sent for reprocessing.


Customers can then buy back paper products made from waste paper cups.
