National Cup Recycling Scheme
In 2018, Valpak partnered with Costa Coffee to develop a new national initiative which aims to significantly increase the collection and recycling of paper cups in the UK.
Eight major retailers joined together to form a voluntary industry collaboration which targets paper cups. The National Cup Recycling Scheme brings together retailers, waste collectors and brands to save paper cups from being sent to landfill or littered.
Our National Paper Cup Recycling Scheme was shortlisted for MRW’s National Recycling Awards 2019 – Partnership Excellence – Commercial. We were extremely proud to be finalists in this category.
The scheme was also shortlisted for Letsrecycle’s Awards for Excellence – Waste management initiative in the retail, commercial and public sector. We were finalists in this category too!
