DS Smith Brings Coffee Cup Recycling Solutions to Europe
Recently, coffee cup and packaging manufacturers DS Smith announced the implementation of a new recycling program geared toward Europe’s Benelux region. The new recycling program will be located at the company’s De Hoop Mill in the Netherlands. By partnering with collection firm Renewi, a recent trial program successfully recycled 100,000 coffee cups. But that’s just a fraction of what they hope to accomplish: the recycling of the more than 4.5 billion recyclable cups used throughout the region on an annual basis.
New “Pay-as-You-Throw” Waste Collection Services
One innovative company, Biffa, is enabling consumers and businesses to use a downloadable app or book private waste collection services online or via phone. Known as “Skoup,” clients have the option of reserving a bin collection starting at just £10, van waste disposal services from £99, or trash truck rentals starting at £130. The impetus for the idea stems from a comprehensive survey the company performed that found that homes and businesses are wasting loads of space storing junk they’ll never use.
New Scheme Tackles Tons of Plastics in the UK
This new technology is aimed specifically at “agri-plastics.” Farmers use things like crop covers and silage wraps on a regular basis to stabilize growing temperatures, in addition to protecting crops against harmful bugs and pests. The new project started by Agriculture, Plastic, and Environment UK (APE UK) aims to provide farmers with a sustainable way to dispose of such plastics.
According to recent reports, 44,000 tonnes of these plastics hit the market in the UK each year but only approximately 35 percent of them are later recycled. This provides great opportunities in the European solid waste disposal marketplace for businesses that want to get in on the ground floor.
