Due to the plastic lining in takeaway cups, it is very challenging for waste management streams to recycle them. In order to hold a hot drink for a period of time, the plastic is too thick to be sent to paper recycling streams. Current kerbside and public waste management cannot effectively separate the two materials so the cups get sent to landfill. Customers dispose of their ‘paper cup’ in their paper recycling with best intentions but this in fact contaminates the collection which can result in the whole bin getting sent to landfill.
