THE Harvey Centre is proud to be working with ‘Simply Cups’ to recycle their waste paper and plastic cups.
Customers at The Harvey Centre will find bins located around the centre that allow them to dispense of leftover liquids before separating the lids from the cups in the easy-to-use bins.
Simply Cups is the UK’s only collection and recycling service dedicated to turning paper and plastic cups into second-life materials. The service came about due to the estimated 2.5 billion paper drinking cups disposed of each year. These cups are particularly hard to recycle due to the polyethylene coating used on the cup.
Simply Cups works with businesses like The Harvey Centre to provide bins that help them efficiently segregate materials for efficient, cost effective recycling. A documented audit trail is also provided to all companies that work with Simply Cups which shows them exactly where their cups are recycled.
Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says, “We’re proud to be working with Simply Cups on this recycling initiative. Disposing of commercial and consumer waste in an environmentally conscious way can be a labour-intensive and expensive process but Simply Cups makes it easy and cost-effective. It’s also reassuring to have the paper trail that proves where our cups end up.”
