NextCupCycle manufactures everyday products from complex waste streams such as paper plastic laminates. NextCupCycle has been developed after years of research on paper plastic composites with specifically designed resins and formulations to meet a variety of property requirements.
The launch material for NextCupCycle resin is based on coffee cups that do not have an end of life option. Millions of takeaway paper coffee cups are sent to landfill because until now an end of life solution has not been possible.
Companies NextCupCycle work with to produce the full circular solution:
– Ashortwalk can supply a range of product solutions for your company.
– Simply Cups can collect your waste stream starting the circular approach.
A recent survey asked consumers about coffee cup recycling. 61% of consumers said they look to recycle their cup but it is not easy in the current environment. 88% of consumers said recycling should be consumer friendly. This is where NextCupCycle and their team provide a solution. Just 43% of consumers could answer if coffee cups are recycled. 100% of the public loved to see the products that NextCupCycle resin produced and would love to see more of this.
Please contact us regarding your waste enquiries and recycle your coffee cups.
