Our Cup Recycling Unit is now even more eco-friendly

May 25, 2017

Did you know that an estimated 2.5 billion paper cups are thrown away in the UK each year? The Wybone Cup Recycling Unit has been specifically designed for the collection of disposable paper cups and liquid waste.

We’re always thinking of new ways to improve our products, so we’ve designed the Eco Cup Recycling Unit that offers the same great level of quality, but with an eco-friendly design that allows us to pass on significant cost savings to our customers.

Manufactured from galvanised steel with a rolled circular body and a vacuum formed durable plastic lid, the bin now features 2 circular apertures for the collection of paper cups and lids and a smaller circular aperture for the collection of liquid.

This bin has the capacity to collect up to 100 litres of disposable paper cups and lids, with an additional 3.5 litres in the liquid collection tube. It also features internal hooks to ensure the waste bag can be hooked in place to avoid unsightly overhang.

Shaped like a take away cup, we think this design is eye catching and will encourage users to segregate and accurately dispose of their waste.

The body is powder coated in silver as standard, but you can choose any of our standard metal coating colours to customise your bin.

Logos, vinyl lettering, or even bespoke artwork can also be added to promote and encourage recycling.

Celebrity Chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall continues his campaign to reduce waste, focusing predominantly on the lack of recycling for disposable coffee cups.

Here at Wybone, we’re passionate about recycling and we believe that by providing adequate and innovative recycling units, we can help to improve on the poor state of coffee cup recycling.
